Buttermilk Cornbread

So moist and delicious – just add some honey and butter.

Y’all haven’t lived till you make your own cornbread. It’s like nothing else in the world. So moist and corny good. My favorite part is slathering on the butter and honey. Total side dish or dessert perfection.

The moistness of this bread is second to none. It’s all thanks to that buttermilk so don’t skip it or substitute with regular milk. You can make buttermilk at home anyway with some lemon juice and regular milk. Just google the exact recipe.

Please serve this with butter and honey and don’t look back. This bread will become a staple in your home.
