Sweet Southern Cornbread

This  dessert-like Sweet Southern Cornbread is going to take your family by storm combining cornmeal, buttermilk, cheese, eggs, organic non-GMO verified corn and spicy jalapeño peppers all baked in an old-fashioned cast iron skillet to perfection.

This Sweet Southern Cornbread may cause a bit of an uproar in some Southern homes; the truth be told about us “Southerners” we make more than one cornbread: there’s the 0 sugar White Corn Bread that we enjoy with our soup beans, The Yellow Corn Pon that has 0 sugar and lastly a Sweet Yellow Corn Bread that can be eaten as a dessert almost – I hate to break to all of you ladies fighting among one another over “Who properly makes true Southern Corn Bread and who doesn’t.”

Sweet Southern Cornbread

I have been blessed with 2 moms one is my birth mother and the other is my adoptive mother (yes, I was adopted when my mom passed away) I adore my adoptive mom she’s my best friend and confidant. So if you don’t believe me, take her word along with 3 generations of her family of “Southerners” that are family members from Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi that all 3 ways are true methods of Southern Belles to make Corn Bread.

  1. I’ve been wanting to make cornbread for my chili this winter but never had a chance to look for a recipe. Your Sweet Southern Cornbread is the recipe I’ve been looking to make. I’ve pinned and shared, and printed so I can make this.

  2. This looks so delicious. I never thought of making cornbread in a frying pan. This recipe is similar to my Mexican cornbread. Jalapeños are a great taste zinger for cornbread. I love the texture fresh corn adds. Lovely post!

  3. I’ve never actually tried cornbread – it’s just not something we make here. But reading that ingredients list makes me really want to try this. I LOVE cooking with buttermilk, and cheese and jalapeno are two of my favorites!
