Southern Cornbread

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by BeachGirl

This is an easy, traditional, slightly sweet Southern cornbread. I often make a batch to use in my homemade stuffing/dressing casserole. It freezes well after cooking.

This was a very good recipe! I made one substitution: I swapped the oil for unsweetened applesauce. This made the cornbread rather more like a cake though, but it was still delicious. My son loves it! For 8 servings, with the applesauce substitution, one serving has 3 ww points! Very yummy! Good with ham and beans!
