Moist Cornbread Recipe: The Only Cornbread Recipe You'll Ever Need

In Texas, everyone has their opinion about the perfect cornbread. Moist or crumbly? A little sweet or no sweetness at all? Cast iron skillet or baking dish? Muffins, sticks or squares? For me, this is the perfect cornbread recipe. Period.

My all-time favorite cornbread recipe is made with Jiffy corn muffin mix, sour cream, eggs, melted butter, salt and cream-style corn. Mix all the ingredients together, pour them into a 13x9-inch baking dish and bake. That's it. In no time you'll have a pan of moist cornbread. Quick and easy!

Cornbread can be served as a side dish with any meal. It's perfect with barbecue, a bowl of beans, gumbo, soup or stew. Actually, it's perfect with any meal (try it with fried chicken!).
