Don’t you just love the taste of fresh steamy cornbread straight from the oven?
I’m sharing with you an easy and simple way to make quick cornbread all from scratch!
Cornbread is traditionally more of a southern style quick bread. I’ve only been down in the southern part of the U.S. maybe twice. But, my family loves a good cornbread. So yes, even here in Utah we can make some delicious cornbread!
This Easy Golden Cornbread is crumbly and super moist with a crunchy crust. The aroma is amazing!
Every time I make this cornbread, it is devoured right away. No leftovers of this ever lingering, period.
In fact, this recipe is one of my little Easton’s very many requests for us to make together…it’s that easy!
The texture of the cornbread is very tasty with the right amount of cornmeal. Then, just a little bit of sugar added to balance the savoriness of the quick bread. It’s perfect to serve with Pulled Pork Chili…or just by itself. (As what we usually end up doing!)
Put all of your ingredients into a large mixing bowl. That’s right, no particular order.
Whisk until all mixed together. There will be some small lumps. But do not over mix. Tip: I will usually use a hand mixer and do a quick go around with the batter to get most of the lumps out.
Pour into a greased 8×8 inch baking dish. Since I already used some of the butter flavored shortening in the mix, I used some on a paper towel to smear in the pan.
Bake for 25-30 minutes in a 400 degrees preheated oven. Once the top starts to get golden and crack on the top, stick a tooth pick into the middle center. If the tooth pick comes out clean, then it’s done. Allow to cool down for about 5 minutes before cutting.
Have a piece right of the oven with a pat of butter…and you’ll be in cornbread heaven!
