Honey Cornbread ~ My Favorite Wintertime Side Dish!

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.  


A few years back, I was discussing dinner options with Jason. "You know what sounds really good?" I asked. "Chili and cornbread." Ooh, the look I got! It was like I just arrived from another planet. "You don't eat chili with cornbread! You eat it with crackers!" Thus, a huge debated ensued. We grew up in the south, and cornbread was a staple every time we had chili. I don't know if it's a southern thing or not, but he thought it was the most absurd thing he ever heard. Not one to let him win, that night we had chili. WITH cornbread.

And you know what happened? My point was made. He raved about how it was one of the best food combinations ever. The next time he saw his mom he said, "Why didn't we ever have cornbread with our chili?" "Because you eat chili with crackers" was her response. And round and round they went. 

I bought myself a good, used cast iron skillet just for cornbread making. The older and more seasoned it is, the better! I do like to experiment with different recipes, and recently tried this honey cornbread from Golden Blossom Honey. I've never tried it with honey, but am glad I did! It turned out so moist and delicious, the recipe is going to be a staple every time we have chili now.

  1. I've never made it with honey, but probably a treat with the spiciness of chili. Cast iron skillet is great! Now you've got me wanting that, ALL that!!

    1. There's just something that adds to the flavor when you use an old cast iron skillet. I now hunt them down when I am out at yard sales.

  2. I never made it sweet either. I often make it in my silicone muffin moulds and get lil' corn breads :) both baked and just cooked in boiling water with some garlic, spinach and 'vegeta'

    1. I need to pull my silicone molds out and use them more often. I fear I buy tons of them, then they get tucked into the cabinets never to be seen again. I love the idea of adding spinach! I am totally trying that next time!

    2. I use my silicone molds for everything from scones, muffins, both sweet and savoury, to cornbread, chocolate baskets, peanut baskets, homemade chocolate with hazelnuts... everything :) Even for baking macaroni and cheese, and for rice with peas and carrots

  32. I know my daughter would enjoy this, maybe, but I just can't do cornbread. At all. The thought of it makes my mouth get all icky feeling .... I have always gotten a headache when I eat cornbread, so have not tried since being an adult. I don't even think my sons have ever had it.

    ReplyDelete

  49. I do like cornbread and I do like chili, but I've never thought of them together. Crackers are ok in chili, but corn or tortilla chips are amazing. Will have to try cornbread though.

  53. Well I was born and raised in Ohio and we absolutely ate chili with cornbread. My mom's mom was a high school cook near Toledo, Ohio and I'm sure she served chili and cornbread at lunchtime. Also my first bachelor's was in food science and nutrition (also in Ohio) and our many menu planning courses had those pairings since most folks can eat it, it's nutritious and not too expensive to make. You are right my dear! ~Deb
