Sweet Cornbread

This corn bread goes well with just about anything. I always make it when we have chili. The sour cream makes it nice and moist.

    I love this cornbread recipe! I make it when I'm having chili. My family loves it. I'm going to make it for our Thanksgiving dinner also.

    Bread is baking right now. I like the cheddar cheese and chili pepper option. Highly recommend it.

    The butter and sour cream make it so moist and buttery, one of the best cornbread recipes I have tried!

    Substituted plain yogurt for the sour cream and skim milk for a low fat version.

    Made these into muffins and added some fresh chopped parsley - really good! Nice to have instead of bread with a meal.
