Nothing says comfort food like a good old fashioned slice of cornbread. This sweet cornbread is absolutely delicious! I have been looking for a cornbread recipe for years, you know, like the one our moms would bake and have ready for us after school! The aroma of fresh baked cornbread gives me goosebumps. Thank You Fraiche for posting this recipe, the exact one I have been longing for! Enjoy! Enjoy
Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time 30 minutes Total Time 45 minutes | Makes 12 -15 servings
1 cup butter - softened
1 cup sugar
1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk lukewarm (I used 2%)
2 cups yellow cornmeal
Preheat the oven to 375º F and generously grease a 9" x 13” baking dish.
In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well between the addition of each. Beat until light and fluffy.
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture and milk mixture alternately to the butter mixture in two parts, mixing in between the addition of each, until combined. Fold in the cornmeal.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the edges are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
