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.
