Tips to Perfect Sour Cream Cornbread:
This easy sour cream cornbread is perfect because it is just that – extremely easy! All you really need to do is dump, mix, and bake – but I’m adding a couple extra tips and tricks to make sure you have the absolute BEST cornbread, ever!
- Grease your pan thoroughly.
- Cornbread can be a total nightmare to scoop up (or clean up) from a pan that isn’t well prepared – but it is really easy to prevent a complicated cleanup.
- Be sure to prepare your baking dishes well before baking – I prefer a flour-based baking spray, but butter, crisco, and lard work great, too.
- Sprinkle a little coarse sea salt on top.
- For a little extra crunch and salty flavor, sprinkle a bit of celtic sea salt or kosher salt on top of the cornbread before baking. Just a pinch goes a long way!
- Drizzle honey over batter.
- Right before pouring batter into your baking dish, drizzle some honey over the batter and give 1-2 quick turns of your spoon to “marble” the honey through the batter for a deliciously sweet kick that sets this cornbread above the rest!
- Cream together wet ingredients before adding dry.
- To prevent lumps and a dry texture, make sure you cream together the butter and the sugar well before adding dry ingredients – it will make your stirring much easier when you do add the dry!
- Brush a little butter on top before it is done baking.
- When your cornbread is set in the oven, but before it is completely cooked (after about 20 minutes), brush 1-2 tablespoons melted butter over the top of the cornbread for an extra salty, rich, and delicious crunchy crust!
