The Best Way To Keep Your Cornbread Moist
It happens to the best of us: The flour was measured right, your oven temperature perfectly calibrated, but alas, the cornbread fell apart before you could even cut into it, leaving you with mediocre corn croutons. The culprit can be hard to pinpoint, but with one simple tip and a little experimenting, you can make reliably moist cornbread every time.
Back To My Southern Roots shares a tip for elevating cornbread, adding one simple ingredient you likely already have in your fridge, sour cream. In addition to added moisture, sour cream brings a little fat and acid to your cornbread recipe and compliments the sweet and savory flavors without being overpowering.
If you're uneasy about adding sour cream, you can add a drop of vanilla to mellow it out; while those who want even more of the tangy flavor can replace the milk with sour cream entirely. Once you understand the basics, you can start experimenting to see what works best for you.
