Moist Northern Cornbread (Cornbread Buttermilk)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by wyojess

I wanted a moist, tender recipe and this one fits the bill. My own twist on a classic recipe. It's even great the next day! You can find the powdered buttermilk in the baking isle at Wal-Mart or your favorite grocery store. It keeps a long time and is a great kitchen essential. TIP: Spray cast iron pan with non-stick spray and place in the oven for 5-10 minutes. Pour in cornbread until cups are 2/3 full. Cooks in half the time and tastes even better!

This is a great recipe. I did make some changes as follows. I used 1 cup of regular yellow cornmeal and 1/4 cup of stone ground corn meal. I used 1/2 cup of pastry flour and 1/4 cup of whole grain cake flour. Instead of butter, I used unsalted margarine and I used carnation milk. I also substituted 1/2 cup of liquid eggs for the whole eggs called for. My daughter loved it so did I. Not dry at all.
