Moist Cornbread Life-Changing Recipe

to die for cornbread

This is an incredible moist cornbread recipe; it has a tight crumb so it was not some crumbly waste-of-time BS cornbread. This is truly life-changing cornbread. Trust me when I tell you that this is the most moist cornbread you will ever bake.

Moist Cornbread Life-Changing Recipe

This cornbread veers more towards spoon-bread territory than your regular old lame crumbly dusty-ass cornbread. It’s tender, creamy, and not-too-sweet, everything you could ask for in a moist cornbread recipe. Don’t you just hate the overly crumbly cornbread that just breaks in your hands and isn’t even worth eating anymore? Me too. I wish this wasn’t the case for most cornbread recipes but that is why we have this one now!

I imagine it would be really good with some whipped butter on top – a classic cornbread move – but I went with a drizzle of manuka honey and a hit of flakey salt (obvs). That really just took this moist cornbread recipe to the next level for me truly.
