Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Nado2003

This is BETHANY WEATHERSBY's from grandmother's recipe. I must say it is the best cornbread I've ever made and consume. It is sweet and moist, fast and easy to make. In the time it takes to preheat my oven I had prepared the recipe and ready to bake. Tastes so much better than the box kind. I had to put the recipe here because I keep all my favorite recipes on

I like my cornbread sweet and moist, and like other reviews have said this is it! Reminds me of Jiffy cornmuffin mix. I baked mine in muffin tins--recipe yielded 12 normal muffins and baked it for 15-20 minutes, until the tops turned a lovely golden color! Thanks for sharing! Yum!
