Sweet Cornbread with Buttermilk

Absolutely irresistible!

Sweet Cornbread with Buttermilk myfavouritepastime.comI made this sweet cornbread over Canadian Thanksgiving and we really loved it. I made it again, yesterday, and it tasted even better. If you plan to make it, please use buttermilk. It gives the best result.

Sweet Cornbread with Buttermilk myfavouritepastime.comI hope you are enjoying the week. We still have a lovely weather but soon, the cold will set in. I have learnt to carry my weather with me so I’ll just quickly adjust and move on to the next season. I wish you a happy week!

    1. Happy baking. I’ve never made anything Gluten Free but I hope it works for you. Please share with me your experience. Have a lovely week!

    1. I never imagined there was a recipe on the back of the cornmeal box. Ours are packed in ugly looking polythene bags that I just usually throw away. Next time I shall look out for “the recipe” Enjoy the weekend. Can you imagine we’re have some minuscule flurries right now…ugh!

    1. My son absolutely loves this sweet cornbread. I told him he has to learn how to make it over the weekend. After all it’s so easy to make. Have a great weekend, ahead!

  1. I’ve only made cornbread once in the past and it wasn’t very good. I have eaten it in several places that served it with a meal and I recall one particular restaurant that served it with and order of spareribs. It was so wonderful and moist and flavorful. I found out the secret ingredient was blended cream corn! Have you ever hear of this? I’m wondering if your recipe with the buttermilk might be a secret ingredient too? Perhaps I will have to try it to find out! Happy hump day!

    1. You should try this one. It’s very simple and tasty. I haven’t tried baking it with cream style corn. Maybe next time, I’ll give it a go. I’m already dreaming of the weekend, even though the weather is changing. Enjoy the rest of the week!

  2. Oh? You had Thanksgiving already?? We’re over our wind storm and power outages and such, now we’re in the calm between the next thing…corn bread is one of my favorites!!! Have a good rest of your week!

    1. Ha ha we already had it. Made some 10 litres of stock with the Turkey carcass and been slurping some soup, every week. I am almost finishing it now.. I froze it! Hope your menu is ready? enjoy the rest of the week!

      1. Oh, cool! No, menu isn’t ready, but in process…can’t wait for my girls to be home, but my son can’t make it 😦 the “joys” of grown children…

        1. Girls always come back home, boys, you never know. My daughter always makes the Turkey. I am now thinking about fruit cakes for Christmas. Already soaking fruits in Brandy. I can’t wait to bake…
