Guest Chef Wednesday! Suzie’s Grandma’s Old Fashioned Sweet Buttermilk Skillet Cornbread

 

skillet cornbread.jpgHere’s a sweet, moist and tender cornbread to go alongside yesterday’s Pony Express Cowboy Beans! In my opinion, few things pair better with a large, steaming bowl of chili (or beans) than cornbread!

Today’s delicious offering is from our friend Suzie 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 triangles (or squares) of maize may likely become one of your favorites. You may love it so much that you will find yourself handing down this sweet secret to your loved ones as well.

Thanks, Suzie & the Grandmas!
