Don’t have buttermilk? No worries. Add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice or white vinegar to regular milk. Let sit for a few minutes and then add to recipe.

    It was a terrific hit at our church luncheon and I am now the designated cornbread cook! I had to adjust the amounts because I make 84 servings at a time. It turns out crispy on the edges, delicious all the way through and a great crowd pleaser!!!

    If I make this ahead of time how would I reheat it?

    sorry, but i googled “large batch corn bread recipe” and got your site. it’s small batch/homemaker recipe. not what i want

  4. I have made this cornbread several times and it is a hit every time!!! My family and I like a slightly sweeter cornbread so, all I do is add an extra 1/2 cup of sugar and that is enough to satisfy!! It is even more wonderful with the honey butter!
