  • Summary

    This cornbread is a rare compromise between Southern and Northern cornbreads: it's "just right," as far as the amount of sugar. It's tender and moist, with a balanced corn flavor. While delicious just as it is, this recipe can also accommodate all kinds of personal touches. Feel free to add some cheese, green onions, corn kernels, jalapeo peppers, cooked sausage, or any combination of these suggestions. The combined volume of your add-ins should be a maximum of 1 cup. Our guarantee: This cornbread will bake up light and tender, not dry, and have a moist crumb.
