Southern Pride Sweet Cornbread

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Dawn399

Long before Boston Market cornered the market on cornbread, the women in my family were making up a darn good corn bread themselves. Every BBQ or potluck this cornbread was in demand. I finally handed one of my aunties a measuring cup (you know they never measure anything) and learned how to make it. It really does resemble the taste of Boston Market, almost could be a dessert with that sweet taste of honey and some butter on top...

We have tried many cornbread recipes and always seem disappointed. This recipe is a KEEPER! YUM YUM! I was leary about the large amount of salt and baking powder and about the lumps in the batter after mixing. BUT, everything worked out beautifully! I made 22 muffins, cooked for 13 minutes at 375. We used a course ground yellow cornmeal. This is fantastic! Thank you!
