Southern Style Cornbread

Southern Style Cornbread

It is true! You can take the girl out of the South, but you can’t take the Southerner out of the girl!  I am a Texas girl, despite wearing ‘Melbourne Black’ and believing that proper tea is served hot.  I am reminded of this fact (my Southernness) time and time again especially when I set to baking traditional Southern comfort dishes such as cornbread.

There is something fabulously homey about the gritty texture of a good Southern cornbread!  Cornbread comes in many variations, but in the South, the good stuff is sure to contain a good dose of cornmeal/polenta, buttermilk and NO sugar.  After all this is a savory, not a dessert!
