Homemade Cornbread The Ultimate Recipe

"Cornbread is ancient food that originated in the Americas. Native Americans used corn for almost everything. And one of the best creations is the humble cornbread. Over the years, the flavor of cornbread has evolved. The texture is much changed from the time when cornbread just crushed corn kernels, water and fat. One great leap forward in texture was the super-hot cast-iron skillet. It is an essential tool to create a nice crispy and well-baked cornbread. Cornbread making has evolved from a necessity to something that people love. It is now considered a delicacy and a common side for classic southern dining."

NotesThis cornbread recipe is exactly what you want from cornbread — rich corn flavor with a hint of buttery flavor. It’s absolutely perfect.
