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.

What a delicious way to prepare cornbread! If you're not team sweet for cornbread, you may not like this though. Nice and fluffy, the cornbread is super tender and almost has a cake-like texture. The bread itself is slightly sweet and has bits of sweet potato in every bite. Topped with the honey butter, it's almost like a dessert that's not too sweet. Yum!
