Sweet Country Corn Bread

This cornbread is sweet moist, tender and delicious. It will soon be your go to cornbread recipe.

Some people say that if you truly are a southerner then you eat your cornbread with little to no sugar. I think that is a bunch of bologna. I think there are bunch of us southerners who love to make our cornbread on the sweet side. In fact we prefer it.

My case in point, I brought some sweet cornbread to work and it got devoured. No complaints. I did do a unofficial survey and found that all the people in my office prefer sweet cornbread. I am not sure if they said that because at the time they were eating my sweet cornbread or what.  Even Monkey girl liked it and she hates everything.

I also baked it in my trusty Cast Iron pan. It makes the edges and bottom kind of crispy and golden brown.
