It's kinda funny and odd that I'm posting this cornbread recipe and it is August. Cornbread is a staple side dish in our house during the fall and winter. We love to eat it with hot soup on a cold, crisp day. But here we are in AUGUST, and it's definitely not cold or crisp around here... But we still love our cornbread!
^^^This vintage, brown pan is from Grandma's house. I totally want to steal it, shhh ;)
This cornbread is a perfect savory or sweet option. Our family (after eating it with our soup) likes to dish up hot pieces of this cornbread and slather it with butter and maple syrup or honey. It's seriously SO good!
So here's a little piece of fall for your summer season, or for whatever season you want! Because around here, you can make cornbread any day of the year, because it's always good!
