The sweet potatoes give this cornbread a delicious twist, and helps make it moist. It is wonderful served with the cinnamon butter while still warm.

The flavors in this cornbread work wonderfully together in this recipe. The cornbread is really moist (thanks to the sweet potatoes). And the cinnamon honey butter tops it perfectly. Your kitchen will smell amazing while this is baking! The Test Kitchen
