Comments

Makes 9 slices of cornbread or 12 corn muffins.

Serve warm with butter and honey.

Cornbread compliments a main dish soup very well. Try it with veggie chowder or chicken noodle soup.

*Note: I make my corn bread sweet and moist. My kids say it tastes a little bit like cake. If you do not want your bread so sweet then just put in ¼ cup sugar.

The vanilla is optional. It gives the cornbread a nice flavor, but again, if you do not want your bread so sweet and cake-like then you can omit the vanilla.
