It's hard to believe when I hear someone say they can't make cornbread.It's so easy,it's one of the 1st recipes I made when I began cooking as a child.This bread is sweet,the way my family likes it but if you don't like sweet cornbread you can add less sugar or omit.
Adding the oil fat to the bater makes the cornbread light,just be careful!
