Do you have a favorite food that given the chance, you'd eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Yeah, me too!
Nothing better than piping hot, fresh from the oven and smothered in butter cornbread ~ yumo!
I've always liked cornbread but learned a little "secret" to making it even better. Captain Project and his buds used to participate in the annual Chili Cookoff in Stone Mountain, Georgia when we lived in Atlanta. To their chargrin, they never won an award for their chili concoctions but they did for their cornbread!
Turns out the secret is adding just a little bit of honey and brown sugar! I like to use Jiffy brand cornbread mix. I dump two boxes into a bowl, crush the lumps with a fork, add milk and eggs according to package directions then add approximately 1/2 teaspoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of dark brown sugar. Don't add too much more (I've tried) because it'll change the texture of the bread.
It's soooo good! There was one lonely piece left when I went into our kitchen this morning. It looked so pitiful (don't judge me, I was just trying to put it out of its misery!).
One of the tastiest breakfasts I've had in a long time!
