This is great for us! I like a sweet moist cornbread. I made some changes- scant 1/2 cup sugar, 4 tbs melted butter, 3/4 cup buttermilk 1/3 cup water (ran out of milk, but this was fine!) and 3 tsp baking soda. I also used and 8x8 and baked at 375 for 30 minutes, but will try the 400 next time. this will be my go-to cornbread!
I haven't had really good cornbread since I spent a year in Florida -until now. I made this tonight to go with the chili I made, and ended up eating three good sized squares myself. I loved the slight sweetness to the cornbread. The only thing I might change next time, and there will defintely be a next time, is to add a bit more milk to the batter, the squares were still a tiny bit gritty when they were done, and I think the addition of bit more liquid (probably no more than 1/4 cup) would help. Otherwise it was perfect and I have enough leftover for my lunch tomorrow. Thanks for posting the recipe!
