Cornbread isn’t something I eat often, but now that the weather is cooling off I’ve been in the mood for some. Now, I may have lived my whole life here in the south but I like Yankee cornbread ;). Just in case everyone isn’t familiar with the differences, southern cornbread is more savory and heavy while northern cornbread is almost cakey and slightly sweet. Imagine that, I like the sweeter version =). It’s not dessert sweet though, just a hint of sweetness so that it is still the perfect companion to soups and stews. I like to make them in muffin form to reduce bake time, but you could certainly use a cast-iron skillet if you aren’t pressed for time. Enjoy!
