Easy Homemade Cornbread

Freshly baked cornbread speaks smoked meat slathered in bbq sauce, mac and cheese and Meaty Baked Beans.  Cornbread also reminds me of a holiday meal with Cornbread Dressing or an everyday chili meal with bread on the side.

My favorite meat recipes to make BBQ pork with are the Best Instant Pot Pulled Pork Recipe and Margarita Monday Shredded Pork.

Good barbecue needs to be accompanied by bread, rolls or buns of some kind.  Cornbread is the most classic barbecue side dish.

A friend shared their family’s homemade cornbread recipe.  While cornbread isn’t a regular item on our dinner rotation we love trying a variety of recipes.

This cornbread recipe is so easy to make we won’t need to keep a box mix on hand anymore.  Cornmeal plus basic baking ingredients can be quickly mixed up in less than 5 minutes and baked for 30 minutes.

Baking in a 450ºF oven forms a wonderful top crust.  For a soft top lower the oven temperature.

As a carb connoisseur, I enjoy trying new bread recipes.  As a mom with growing kids we need carb-loaded side dishes at every meal to help fill them up.  A few other of our favorite bread recipes are Blueberry MuffinsCarrot BreadStrawberry Muffins and Bran and Raisin Molasses Muffins
