I thought cornbread was one of the easiest things ever to bake... it's the only thing I've ever baked. I don't remember the recipe, I just used the first one off Google, turned out okay.
If you can find America's Test Kitchen recipe, it rocks. Just gritty enough, just the right amount of sweetness...I wrote it down while watching the episode, but lost it, and now it's "premium content" on their site, which you have to pay for...
Just gritty enough
What is cornbread and why do you want it to be gritty!?
Oooh, that looks good. If it's sweet, is it kind of like a cake?
Also, what is southern style like? Even cornbread I had at a Texas BBQ place (in Texas) had the sweet type.
