Our Favorite Cornbread [Thick & Moist]

Our Favorite Cornbread [Thick and Moist]

When I was a newlywed I received this cornbread recipe from my grandmother and it’s been our favorite ever since.  We’ve tried a few other recipes here and there but always come back to this one because it’s so thick and moist and rich in cornmeal flavor.  It’s a delicious, basic, no-fail cornbread recipe.

We like it served along with soups and chili and often eat the leftovers for breakfast.
