Recipe: Sweet Cornbread

The perfect compliment for your next dinner.

What's better than cornbread with dinner? Nothing that I can think of, honestly. I prefer sweet cornbread over the more hearty, savory kind.

This was delicious and super easy. I made this a few hours ahead of time of a dinner party and it was perfectly timed for dinner. It was the perfect compliement to grilled bratwurst and mac and cheese, and perfectly paired with my .

I highly suggest, making this for your next dinner party or family gathering instead of rolls, as a nice surprise for your guests.
