Homesteader Cornbread

If you’re looking for a recipe for moist, delicious cornbread, this is it!  I can’t explain the science behind letting the cornmeal sit in the milk for a few minutes, but something magical happens.  It’s so much better than using a box mix.  Trust me, the few extra minutes you’ll spend making it from scratch will be totally worth it.

I’m the only person in my family who likes cornbread (seriously, what is wrong with these people?), which means if I don’t half the recipe, I’ll be eating a lot of cornbread!  Not that I’d mind.  I like to bake this  in 9-inch round pans and cut it into wedges.  It also makes great cornbread muffins.
