Buttermilk Cornbread: This is heaven to me..in a dish. I won’t lie, I ate almost all of it.

This has been a good week for me, according to Brandon. Every night I have made something he loves, and it has turned out great (more recipes to come this weekend)! It makes me really happy to be able to make things from scratch, considering that about 4 years ago, I couldn’t boil potatoes.

 I have a weakness for anything bread related. My sister recommended this recipe to me from allrecipes.com, and it is fantastic… so when I made homemade chili this week, of course we had to have cornbread!

Buttermilk Cornbread

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup corn meal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease an 8×8 baking dish.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar. Quickly add eggs, and beat until blended. Combine buttermilk with baking soda and stir into the mixture in pan. Stir in flour, corn meal, and salt until well blended. There shouldn’t be any lumps. Pour batter into greased dish.
  3. Bake in a preheated oven 35-45 minutes, or a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.

This goes amazing with chili, so let me know if you would like that recipe! Thanks for reading:)
