Deliciously Sweet Cornbread


Deliciously Sweet Cornbread compliments family quality time. Why? The aroma as it is cooking lures them to the kitchen: the taste keeps them at the table. There, events of the day and hopes of the future are shared. Unless, of course , they are teenaged boys with insatiable appetites. Silence can be as golden as cornbread!



This is so simple to throw together and the sweetened- condensed milk is an amazing twist of secret sweetness. Following directions as listed below,  you can place the pan on the middle rack of a 400 degree preheated oven.


It comes out perfect! Go get the butter and/or honey and slather it on!
