Easy Sweet Buttermilk Cornbread with it’s moist and tender texture, buttery sweet flavor and slightly crisp edges, it’s no wonder we never have leftovers.
Nobody wants dry, crumbly cornbread. I tried many recipes that produced a very crumbly, dried out cornbread. I like my cornbread sweet. Not so sweet that its mistaken for a cake, but sweet enough that it enhances overall flavor of the cornbread.
This Easy Sweet Buttermilk Cornbread is everything I have ever wanted in cornbread. This recipe is very simple and can be whipped up in no time at all. By the time everybody is sitting down for dinner, you will have a hot pan of cornbread to go along with your meal.
I ended up making this two pans of cornbread to take pictures. We have half a pan leftover and it is still just as moist as it was on the first day.
Slather some Fluffy Cinnamon Honey Butter or 30 Minute Raspberry Freezer Jam over a slice of warm Easy Sweet Buttermilk Cornbread. I promise, you won’t regret it!
With love from my kitchen to yours,

When making this cornbread recipe can you leave the sugar out. I do not like sweet cornbread.
I have never tried leaving the sugar out in this recipe. If you don’t like sweet cornbread, I would recommend cutting down the sugar to 1 to 2 tablespoons. I hope this helps!
