Notes

  • To be certain the cornbread is done baking, insert a toothpick in the middle after the timer goes off. If the toothpick comes out clean, it's ready to be pulled from the oven.
  • Let the cornbread cool a little before cutting. If it's hot, it's going to crumble and become messy. (but still tasty!)
  • You can subsite the regular milk in this recipe with buttermilk for a little tang!
  • To Freeze-  cut it into squares and place in a sealed container. Thaw by letting it sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
  • To Reheat - wrap in foil and reheat in the oven for about 15 minutes at 350°F.
