What is Southern Cornbread?
So what is southern style cornbread? Southern style cornbread is a sweet cake-like cornbread. It is made with yellow or white cornmeal. This style of cornbread calls for more eggs than other styles of cornbread which gives it a buttery taste and that cake-like texture I love. When we lived in the south, we were served sweet cornbread often at bbq joints. It paired so well and we knew we had to recreate that sweet taste.

How to make Homemade Cornbread
Let's get baking!
What are the ingredients of cornbread? Your dry ingredients are, yellow cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. The Wet ingredients include, eggs, melted butter and milk.
First start by mixing together all the dry ingredients together in a medium sized mixing bowl. Why do you mix together your dry ingredients before adding the wet ingredients? This makes sure that all the dry ingredients mix thoroughly and incorporate throughout the entire mix.
Next, add in all the wet ingredients to your well mixed dry ingredients. Mix together until the batter is smooth.
Pour the cornbread mixture into a lightly greased 9x9 pan.
Cook cornbread for 20 minutes at 425 degrees.
You can check for doneness by sticking a toothpick in the center and if it comes out clean it's done.
Cut and serve immediately with butter and honey.
Tips and Tricks
Another fun way to make this cornbread recipe is making it into cornbread muffins instead. Put about 1/4 cup of batter in a lined cupcake pan. Bake the muffins for 10 minutes at 425. Depending on which type of cupcake liners you use, you may need to decrease or increase the cook time. I love using silicone cupcake liners and often find I need to increase the cook time to compensate for the difference from paper liners.
