Guest Chef Wednesday! Bethany’s Grandma’s Sweet Buttermilk Cornbread


In my opinion, few things pair better with a large steaming hot bowl of chili than Cornbread! Today’s delicious offering is from our friend Bethany who gathered it from her Grandmother who collected it from “her” Grandmother; it’s that memorable and delicious! With buttermilk and a few simple ingredients hiding in your kitchen, the end result will be sweet, moist, yellow bread packed with corn flavor; offering impeccable texture as well. Piled high with sweat cream butter or drizzled with honey, these soft, scrumptious squares of maize may likely become one of your favorites. You will love it so much that you may find yourself handing down the sweet secret as well.
