The Foolproof Addition For Cornbread That Is Indeed Moist
Beyond flavor, the key to great cornbread lies in its texture, and to ensure a delicious and pillowy batch of bread, try adding a spoonful (or more) of sour cream.
Because sour cream is fatty, it helps to shorten gluten strands that could otherwise add toughness to baked goods, and ultimately enhances their moisture and tenderness.
If you’re making boxed cornbread, experiment with using small amounts of sour cream, then add more until you get an ideal batter consistency that’s thick and creamy.
Since all kinds of fatty ingredients can add moisture to the batter, you can experiment with other types (like Greek yogurt) to see how they transform your cornbread.
