Buttermilk Cornbread

I love love love cornbread. Nothing goes better with barbecue than a sweet, tender piece of cornbread. In fact, whenever we go out for barbecue, I always order an extra side of cornbread. I’ve been looking for a great cornbread recipe for years, and hadn’t found one I loved until now. Most of the recipes I tried were either dry, crumbly or extremely bland. I think the secret to this recipe is the addition of buttermilk, as it really makes the cornbread soft and moist. This cornbread mixes up fast, and would be great as a side to all the great chilis and stews that we’ll be eating this fall.

    I LOVE cornbread! It can be tough to find a good recipe. Growing up, my mom used the Jiffy cornbread mix and added a little bit of the Jiffy yellow cake mix to help make it moist. There is nothing worse than dry cornbread that nearly chokes you.
