The Best Cornbread Ever (Sour Cream Cornbread)

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by A Messy Cook

This is the best cornbread I have ever had. Ever. No exceptions. As written, the recipe makes two you might want to halve it if you have a smaller family.

Super moist and not really gritty. The pastry flour and oil gave it a cake-like texture, and very light. Even my husband, who isn't a cornbread fan, has eaten multiple slices. I didn't have the whole wheat party flour, so I used regular pastry flour. Awesome recipe!
