Any of you Southerners have a good recipe for sweet, moist cornbread?


Thanks.


My wife will only use "Brinser's Best", but then she is simply the world's finest cook, so what can I say????

I really like the recipe on the back of the Quaker Cornmeal box. We always made that growing up and it is really good.

Sometimes we'd just bake a pan and eat it all for breakfast. :lol:

I know how to read packages and dry, crumbly cornbreads are a dime a dozen. I want a sweet, moist cornbread recipe.

I have done a google search but would prefer a recipe from someone who knows that what they make is good. Again, I generally buy muffin mixes and we like them just fine but I have some cornmeal and would like to use it. Thanks.

Creamed Corn Cornbread Recipe courtesy Alton Brown
Show: Good Eats
Episode: Cable in the Classroom

2 cups yellow cornmeal
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1 cup creamed corn
2 tablespoons canola oil

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Place a 10-inch cast iron skillet into the oven.

In a bowl, combine the cornmeal, salt, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Whisk together to combine well.

In a large bowl, combine the buttermilk, eggs, and creamed corn, whisking together to combine thoroughly. Add the dry ingredients to the buttermilk mixture and stir to combine. If the batter will not pour, add more buttermilk to the batter.

Add 2 tablespoons canola oil to the cast iron skillet. Pour the batter into the skillet. Bake until the cornbread is golden brown and springs back upon the touch, about 20 minutes.

I'm telling you, the one on the Quaker cornmeal pkg is sweet and moist. I could eat a whole pan of it and I'm not a big cornbread person.

Now that is a direct slap in the face! This is the cornbread recipe I have used for many years with great success, and I would not have shared it with you if it wasn't. Stick with your muffin mixes then and stop asking for recipes.

Southern Cooks SWEAR by this recipe! Tennessee Ernie Ford used to be the spokesperson for Martha White and even HE said "It's Pea Pickin' Good!" http://www.marthawhite.com/heritage/ernieford.asp

Would Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs steer you wrong?

Now before you just go ahead and ASSUME that this is a terrible recipe - maybe you ought to give it a try. If you want to make truly Southern Cornbread, subsitute bacon grease for the cooking oil - super yummy! My only advice is don't knock it before you try it!

Goes best with Pinto Beans, Fried Taters, Collard Greens, Sliced Maters fresh from the garden, and a Gallon Jug of Sweet Tea!

That is the favorite recipe of southerners like my dh, but I, and I think Jess, prefer recipes with sugar added. :D Nothing bad about your recipe, but its the kind people like my dh likes, not us choosy picky sweet tooth people. :lol:

No slapping going on here. I asked for moist and sweet but your recipe (and I'm sure many southerners like it) doesn't contain any sugar. *shrugs*

Can't help ya here either. I like sweet cornbread but most of my family doesn't. I do make a mean white corn bread (according to my wife and son) but I don't measure anything. The key is a generous amount of oil (or bacon grease) an egg and plenty of Buttermilk. :D

Carn Bread ain't sweet! Making corn bread sweet is as bad as putting honey butter on it. If you want to eat cake eat cake. I was raised in the deep south and most of my family is from North Carolina. I do not ever recall eating sweet corn bread until I went into a chain restaurant here in California. Of course California can mess up anything. My goodness, sweet cornbread? What do you eat it with? ice cream and chocolate sauce. Make it salty and drizzle it with bacon grease!

In Christ,
George

I have tried Martha Stewart recipes, and it is really good, but any unsweetened cornbread leave a bitter aftertaste for some reasons, and I felt I need to put applesauce to get rid of that bitter aftertaste. Some people drink buttermilk (like my dad) with it but I don't like buttermilk.

Well I do apologize for coming across harshly, IM4Given. That wasn't my intention at all. sorryfl6.gif

My post wasn't directed at you personally. I've made cornbread like your recipe before and my family doesn't like it. They like sweet cornbread (with only butter, George :wink: ) and I thought that maybe Southerners owned the market on cornbread, sweet or not, so I thought I would ask. And then I started getting recipes and advice from all kinds of sources that were telling me which is the best cornmeal and which is the best recipe (w/o sugar) etc. And I was like, *sigh*; this isn't what I asked for. I asked specifically for moist and sweet.

Anyhoo, my apologies for offending anyone.

I like cornbread - especially with pintos. :D Yee-haw!

Apology accepted - never let it be said that I don't turn the other cheek. You made your remarks immediately after my post, then you thanked everyone BUT me for the recipes they posted - so what else am I supposed to believe? That is simply being catty and has no place on this board, especially not from a moderator. When you ask for recipes, you should accept ALL of them graciously whether you plan to use them or not - that would be the Christian way to handle this thread.

P.S. Sweet does not necessarily mean "with added sugar" - that is Yankee Cornbread.

Your response sounds a little catty itself. It might be better to accept an apology graciously. Just my :2cents

:lol: Ya'll (I lived in NC for a time too :wink: ) are so funny. I know plenty of people who put honey or molasses on regular cornbread to sweeten it.
