Buttermilk Cornbread |Indianapolis Food Blogger


Good cornbread is like a warm blanket on a chilly day. Bad cornbread makes me cry. It’s really easy to make a great batch of cornbread from scratch. It’s a bread I like to categorize as a beginner bread. It gets your foot in the door of bread baking. I’m sharing my version of Buttermilk corn bread that is a staple in our home. Growing up, sweet cornbread was affectionately known as “cake” by my Granny. Having been from the South, sweet cornbread was NOT a thing. As her favorite grandchild, she would make a small batch for me lightly sweetened. Because of her, I have a love affair with cornbread. If I see a slice while dining out, I’m definitely ordering it.
