This Sweet Corn Bread is the perfect side dish for your favorite meal! It is super moist and has a nice hint of sweetness to it. I haven’t met a person that doesn’t like it!
As a kid, I hated corn bread. I thought corn bread and sourdough bread were an abomination. While I still haven’t fully grown out of my dislike for sourdough, the exact opposite is true for this sweet corn bread. I love it now! Give me a piece of warm, freshly made corn bread, with a slab of butter on top and I am perfectly content.
This cornbread makes the perfect side to just about any meal. Try it with our personal favorite – a hearty bowl of chili!

Can I freeze this sweet corn bread?
Yes, you can! Let it cool completely before freezing and store it in a freezer storage bag. It is good in the freezer for up to two months. Let it thaw on the counter before reheating in the microwave. Place a mug of water in the microwave while heating it to keep it extra moist.
