Sweet Cornbread

sweet cornbread

Cornbread has a special place in my heart. I’ve tried many different types. JalapeƱo cornbread, cornbread with actual corn pieces in it. But my favourite type is good ol’ sweet cornbread. Now all cornbread is good cornbread. I just have an undeniable sweet tooth and tend to lean over to a sweet cornbread rather than savoury.

Cornbread is ideally a side dish as you can pair it with so many things. You can pair it with chili, meats, vegetables. Butter is up, jam it down. You can have these sweet cornbread with your meal, as a dessert, or a snack.

I don’t have these all the time. I tend to save them for the holiday season or special occasions. As we are entering the holiday season such as Thanksgiving and Christmas these are perfect for the season!

You can pair this drink with my pumpkin spice latte recipe for the ultimate Fall treat. Feel free to follow me @foodiie.diary on Instagram for more food adventures!
