READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by knobbyknee

I was looking online for a good cornbread recipe and came across this one from Food Network, Sara's Secrets. It is super moist and easy to make. You can't mess it up! It is definitely a sweet cornbread. Just how I like it. Every time I make chili, this is the cornbread we have with it. NOTE: the amount of vanilla is correct-it is called Sweet Vanilla for a reason!!! We love it...hope you do too.

Not sure what the other reviewer is thinking - because this is awesome! I thought the amount of vanilla in this was "just right"! Mine also turned out perfectly moist and thoroughly cooked through - even in the center. Different strokes for different folks, I guess! Give this a try, you will NOT be disappointed!
