Sweet Cornbread

This cornbread is sweet, moist and oh so delicious!
This sweet cornbread is a game changer. Now, it’s no secret I have a sweet tooth. My blog is called baked in Arizona after all. So, I love that this cornbread is buttery & sweet. You separate the eggs and whip the whites till they are stiff. Then at the end, you fold them in making for a lighter cornbread. We usually serve this with potato soup. Our Nana always makes potato soup & cornbread for her annual Halloween party. We look forward to it every year.


This cornbread is seriously amazing. You can eat the left overs (if there is any) for breakfast too. Just heat it up and add a little more butter & honey. You have to try this recipe. It is sure to win you over.

    I heart sweet cornbread! I actually just asked my readers the other day if they like sweet or savory– here in the south most people go the gross dry savory route (ew.). I think we should make this fluffy sweet cornbread and prove them all wrong! Thanks so much for sharing at Saturday Night Fever! :)
