    This is the same cornbread recipe that I use, except I also add a packet of instant vanilla pudding mix. It gives the cornbread a flavor that is hard to describe, delicious and delicately sweet but not overly sweet. It’s really good!

      Do you add the pudding dry?

    I make cornbread with SELF-RISING CORNMEAL and you need NO flour….just make it like it says on the back of a bag of Aunt Jemina Corn Meal…..and I also add 1 teaspoon of pepper seeds and about 1/3 cup of chopped onion (saute it first in 1-2 tablespoons butter ) add saute onions and butter also, I add 1 & 1/2 cups buttermilk instead of plain milk. It calls for 1-2 tablespoons of sugar,(optional) I only add 1 teaspoon sugar as I do not want it sweet, but when you use buttermilk, you need to use some sugar…..and my cornbread is great…..try it…. ….you will never just make it plain again…….

    I make sweet cornbread all the time. I prefer it non-sweet, but my husband and kids prefer it sweet. Instead of oil or shortening I use melted butter and I use 2/3 cup of sugar. This is for cornbread baked in a 9×9 pan, so if you want it really sweet baked in a 13×9 pan, you’d need to add more sugar.

    Hi Linda from KY 🙂 must be a kentucky thing,we didn’t make it sweet either….the way I make it , is good with pinto beans or northern beans, or chili or whatever…..cooking some northern beans today, to eat with the cornbread I made the other day…I cut it in pieces and freeze left overs, then just microwave it or my daughter prefers to heat hers in the oven…she likes it crispy….I just crumble mine in my beans anyways, so it doesnt’ matter…and will crumble a piece in a glass of milk….yummy…..do you eat it this way ? Even my granddaughter likes it this way….guess I taught her well lol….
    So where in Ky are you from ?
    Nice talking to you….
