Cornbread is a favorite for so many people for good reason. Its a lightly sweet and filling bread that goes well with a little bit of butter spread on it when still warm.

Can you Freeze Cornbread?
You bet! Simply wrap the cooled cornbread tightly in plastic wrap (Saran Wrap for instance) and place it in a large freezer bag (such as a Ziploc or similar). Make sure it is properly sealed letting out as much air as you can and then place in the freezer. Like most breads, it will last 3-4 months approximately until it will begin to degrade in flavor.
How to Make a Buttermilk Substitute
If you don’t have homemade buttermilk, you can always make your own. Homemade buttermilk substitute isn’t as thick as the buttermilk in the carton, but it still has that tang.
- Take one cup of milk, remove one tablespoon of the milk, and stir in one tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice.
- Let the mixture sit and thicken for 5-10 minutes, then use in the recipe as directed.
Cornbread goes very well with casseroles, soups and, of course, barbecued dishes such as Ribs and Chicken so be sure to remember this recipe once grilling season comes around!
