Cornbread is one of the cornerstone foods that the South is so famous for. Every region – perhaps even every family – has its own special recipe. The recipe below gets a distinct tang and richness by incorporating buttermilk. In true southern style, there’s no sugar added to the recipe. Don’t let that stop you from drenching it in honey butter, though.
You can use either white or yellow cornmeal for this recipe, but I prefer yellow because it gives the finished dish the classic yellow color. Serve it with barbecued ribs, chili or just all by itself with plain butter or honey butter. This may become your family's special cornbread recipe.
