Honey Cornbread

Honey Cornbread

This recipe for honey cornbread is simple and delicious. My husband made a batch this weekend. We enjoyed it with honey and butter and coffee for breakfast.  We also had it with Texas chili for dinner.  It is hearty enough to serve with chili yet perfect for a sweet breakfast treat. It’s another recipe handed down from my mother-in-law.  I love seeing her hand writing on these recipes. It makes me feel like she is in the kitchen with me.

    I had never tried cornbread before I visited the states, but it is so yummy! Germany is definitely missing out on something there! =) Thanks for sharing.

    Yum! I love cornbread, but for some reason I’ve never made it myself. Your photos are fabulous and you’ve made it look very simple. I love that you’ve added a printable version of the recipe! Thanks for sharing, Mary.
