Southern Style Cornbread

Angela LeMoine


Funny story. I was experimenting with coming up with a corn pudding type recipe and well it didn’t turn out to be corn pudding. The great part, it ended up being a really delicious Southern Style Cornbread!!! What makes it “Southern Style”? This cornbread is not sweet, light and fluffy like a cake. Southern style cornbread is dense and made up of mostly cornmeal rather then flour. This makes for a perfect side dish to anything from BBQ to roasted chicken to beef stew.
