The Best Sweet Cornbread

The Best Sweet Cornbread

When I was young, I loved it when my mother made this Sweet Cornbread. I would always ask for more because it was delicious, moist and it tasted like cake. Later I learned that it tasted like cake because a cake mix is one of the ingredients! Yum! This Sweet Cornbread is now a recipe I make regularly for my family, and it’s definitely the best cornbread I’ve tasted. I add it to our meals when I make soup for dinner.
