Would you care to share your favorite cornbread recipe?
Hi everyone, I lost my favorite cornbread recipe. Do you have a good recipe you'd like to share? I prefer a cake-like texture, not the dense kind.
What kind of cornmeal do you have? If a box, does it have a recipe? Anything with roughly equal parts cornmeal and flour will give you that cake-like texture. The amount of sugar is up to you. And beware of the no-sugar cornbread mafia. :)

This is the recipe that I use:
I add 2 teaspoons of sugar since I'm a yankee :) I usually don't go for cornbreads that have more than a Tablespoon or 2 of ap flour, if any at all. I also like browning butter slighty in the skillet rather than using oil, it gives the crusty edges more flavor.
I just made Alton Brown's creamed corn cornbread and it was awesome! I prefer a not so sweet cornbread, and this hit the spot. The kernels of corn were really nice, and it was not too dry, which has been a problem for me with other recipies. If you like a sweeter bread, some of the commenters mentioned they had increased the sugar with good results.
