I love cornbread….Hubby really doesn’t though. I have gotten him to eat the cornbread muffins at Famous Daves and he does admit to really liking them. I like cornbread in any fashion…if it’s dry I like it with honey and butter if it’s not, I like it plain. I’ve tested recipes on and off over the years and hadn’t, to date, found one that Hubby would eat without a little coaxing.
When the girls were home last I mixed up a pot of chili. When they were growing up I often served chili with rice. Yep, weird I know but we would put rice in a bowl and then ladle the chili over the top. I make a hearty chili, not a liquid like soup chili so this always worked great and it was a really good way to stretch the food budget when I was cooking for seven each night. The kids have gone on to eat it like that in their own homes….me, I don’t mind it that way but I really like chili over cornbread best. So the next day when we had leftover chili, I decided that once again, I was going to try to find a cornbread recipe that Hubby might like….and I did.
It’s actually kind of funny as it’s the first recipe that came up when I searched cornbread. It comes from Betty Crocker’s website. You can find it here.
Here’s how it looked right before I put it in the oven.
The recipe is so simple and easy with no fancy ingredients.
Here’s how it looked fresh out of the oven when I cut into it all warm and wonderful……
and here’s how I ate it with my chili.
I got Hubby to try it. He liked it and ate it. There is a sugar in it but I think little by little as he likes it, I’ll cut a little of the sugar taking it from 1/2 cup to 1/4 cup. Once he has it in his head that he likes it, I don’t think he’ll notice the change. He’s easy like that…and me, I’m tricky like that.
If you missed the recipe link above, here it is again.
If you’re looking for a cornbread recipe, this one is worth a try for sure!! Kayla said that Spence and her like when she makes Huevos Rancheros and have them over cornbread. Find that recipe here. Now that I found a cornbread recipe Hubby will eat, I making that next!
