This buttermilk cornbread is so good, it just melts in your mouth. Tender, buttery, and rich, it's a semi-homemade recipe made with ingredients you probably have in the kitchen already. Agave gives the bread a little sweetness. Brushing melted butter over the hot cornbread just adds to the decadence.
