    Cornbread is one of the best Southern dishes. Today we will hand you all the secrets to make the best cornbread.

    • How do I choose good cornmeal?
      • You should check cornmeal for rancidity. If it smells sweet, then it’s good to use. If it smells musty, then it doesn’t belong in the kitchen anymore.
      • Avoid ready-made cornbread mixture in the supermarkets. Instead of all-purpose flour, you can also add whole wheat flour to add nutrients and flavors. Even though most recipes call for flour as an addition to cornmeal, it can be omitted.
      • For every cornmeal, you can add 2 beaten eggs. This will minimize carb portions, add protein and fluffiness to the bread.
    • How do I keep cornbread soft?
      • To keep cornbread moist, avoid machinery when mixing. It’s also better to leave it slightly lumpy.
    • How do I store cornbread leftovers?
      • Ideally, cornbread must be consumed the same it’s baked. But if there are any leftovers, they should be wrapped in plastic and put in an airtight container and can last up to 3 days. You can also freeze them for 4 weeks.
    • How do I make crusty cornbread?

    The color of the pan is essential when choosing the texture of the cornbread. Dark pans add a crust to the bread. Skillets make the crustiest cornbreads.
