1 cup thick sour cream

4 Tbsp milk

If you like cornbread, this one is a keeper. My cornbread always seems to get dry and is never as tasty as I think it will be. Not this cornbread. Moist and so good, just sweet enough and with a hint of tang from the sour cream.

I did add about 1 1/2 Tbsp extra sugar and 1 Tbsp extra butter…..I was worried because of my prior corn bread experiences. Although I am sure it didn’t hurt, I probably didn’t even need to add the extra butter and sugar. I will definitely be making this again, so maybe I will make it both ways and compare. I will keep you posted.

This is one of those times where we ate the final product without a picture….whoops. It was warm, out of the oven and calling our names…..what more can I say?
