Easy Recipe for Corn Bread

I love cornbread. It's delicious. It's pretty. What I love most is its versatility. It can be a snack, a side dish, or the star of the show. You can drizzle it with honey or dip it in chili. You can dress it up or dress it down. This easy to bake recipe leans towards the dressy side with apple, sugar, cinnamon, honey and simple syrup. I usually have a box of Jiffy cornbread mix in my pantry for cornbread emergencies-- but homemade cornbread is a beautiful thing. If you're in search of recipes for sweet cornbread-- this is one of the sweetest I have ever tasted. So how do you make cornbread?

How Do You Make Corn Bread?

This easy homemade dessert is easier to make than you might think. I usually have all the necessary ingredients on hand since they're simple, staple items. The most important ingredient is of course, cornmeal. You can use white or yellow (I've used both before). Cornbread made from white cornmeal will still be yellow from the coloring of the egg yolks. This cornmeal bread recipe can be baked in almost any oven-safe pan or dish and is ready in about 30 minutes.

Cornbread is a bit of a comfort food for me. It reminds me of making cornbread muffins with my mom or cornbread stuffing at Thanksgiving. I enjoy baking it from scratch and also from the box-- but I really love eating it. This dessert is perfect for fall. Serve at informal get-togethers when it's cold outside or bring to Thanksgiving dinner. Make baking and serving even easier by baking in cute ramekins for individual servings.

        I think you just melted my butter with this recipe. I have to be gluten free, so most breads and cakes are off limits for me. I’ve been trying to find recipes to dress up cornbread and pretend it is cake or cobbler, and this fits the bill. I was raised on cornbread and have never lost my love for it. One of my favorites snacks since childhood is a slice of cornbread with butter and jelly or jam on it. Voted up++

        Good looking dish, well done article! Your photographs alone make it worth the read, but the content is even better.

        Like you, I'm a cornbread aficionado. This is a way of doing it with apples I think I've never seen before. It's going to get a try in my kitchen.

        What would you think of adding some shredded apple to the bread itself to tie it all together? I may try that, too.

        Voted up, useful and awesome, with five stars. You all reading, Heather has some more creative recipes on her profile. Take a look.

        I have to compliment you on the way you presented this Hub! Nice photos and good instructions, too.

        We country folks love our cornbread. I grew up on cornbread and buttermilk! Never would have thought of it as a dessert, but this looks so good, I'll have to try it.

        I voted this Hub UP, and will share.
