I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but lately I’ve been on a big comfort food kick. One Pot Vegetarian Chili. Semi Homemade Pot Pie. Orange Spiced Monkey Bread. Guess what? The trend is not ending just yet. While we’ve had some random, gorgeous, warm days here in San Antonio, we’re mostly still experiencing colder temperatures. After spending six years living in Buffalo, NY and another 3 years living in picturesque Colorado, I’ve done my time in cold weather and truly prefer warmer days throughout most of the year. My coping mechanism for dealing with cold temperatures is cozy comfort food. Anyone surprised by this? I didn’t think so, lol.
I’ve been working hard to fine tune my corn bread recipe and I finally have it down. This definitely wasn’t one of those recipes that came together on the first or even second try for me. But let me tell you, it was worth all the trial and error! Just as it says in the name, this corn bread is super moist and fluffy. Most importantly, it is also incredibly easy to make. Say goodbye to dry, crumbly, bland cornbread forever – this is the only recipe you need.
