How to Make Homemade Cornbread

In a winter bowl of stew or chili and a number of other comfort foods, homemade cornbread can be one of the finest accompaniments. By adding green chilies or diced jalapenos, you can be a little creative. Apart from that, you can dump in whole-kernel corn and play with the texture of the recipe. If you are making cornbread at home, you can top it with molasses, honey or butter. With a smear of raspberry jam, you can also make your cornbread a little spicy. However, the experimentation depends completely on your choice. You can easily find cornbread in the store but if you can learn to make it at home, you can save some money and be guaranteed that you are eating healthy.
