I know it is quite a claim to say that this is "the best" cornbread, but in my, albeit limited, experience this really is the best! The recipe is from my friend Taralie and we had the cornbread tonight as a perfect side for Red Beans and Rice. Yum.
The Best Cornbread
1/2 cup melted butter
2/3 cup sugar
Add and Mix in:
1 cup buttermilk (or 1 cup of milk soured with a tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice)
In another bowl combine:
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup flour (+ 1/4 cup for high altitude)
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix dry ingredients into wet mixture. Pour into a greased 8x8 inch baking pan and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. So simple. So good.
