This is a simple, classic buttermilk cornbread recipe baked in a preheated cast iron skillet or a cake pan. There's no sugar in a Southern-style cornbread, but a small amount of sugar or a little honey can be added if you like.
This cornbread recipe is more on the moist and tender side not dry or crumbly that many traditional recipes produce. This is a very easy cornbread recipe that always gets happy reviews.
I usually use melted butter in my cornbread, but melted shortening or cooking oil...
Buttermilk Corn bread is great, especially to a vegetarian diet, where its full flavor and slightly crunchy texture are welcome at any meal.
Don't ever say I can't made Cornbread...Now You can with this recipe dish deliver so much for so little work.
