    Cornbread, as it turns out, wears many hats: essential barbecue side, thing-that-makes-chili-worth-eating, cultural mainstay, even dessert when it has to be. However you want to enjoy it, a few simple tricks will keep your crumb light and and your crusts crunchy, no matter upon which side of the Mason Dixon Line you lie.

    Could I just wait until butter is cooled instead of adding an ice cube? Or maybe using just 75% or brown butter and adding in 25% of cool butter to drop the temp a bit before mixing it with the batter?

    As someone who was born and raised in the deep south... I can assure you ... this is not how it's done. Nice try though! On a side note, you ALWAYS turn the cornbread upside down when you take it out of the cast iron skillet to cool and the oil does not go IN the cornbread... it only goes in the skillet and it is never, ever sweet. Bless your heart ;-)

    I'm from the south, and your first recipe really captured classic cornbread. My uncle really likes sweet cornbread, so i do eat it now and again, but i much prefer the regular cornbread over the sweet. Regular cornbread just goes with most things i think, whereas sweet cornbread is really good for a few meals.

      As a dessert, perhaps. A good buttermilk cornbread in my cast iron skillet. Whoo-wee. Sweet gets nasty with a meal. Rice and stewed tomatoes with _sweet_ cornbread? Nah.

    I just made the last cornbread recipe of the video and the honey butter for breakfast and it’s fantastic! Though I added about a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the honey butter mix because I love vanilla. 10/10 will make again.

    I actually tried making the last version what you called the "apex". Honestly, I thought it had too much butter in it. I would prefer it about 30% less rich... If feels like a butter cake more than bread.

    I'm a "yankee", but the moment I saw flour go into that cornmeal I couldn't continue watching. I dunno what you were making in the second half, but that's NOT cornbread.

    Even if it is northern cornbread I’m very proud you made it into jalapeño cornbread. Literally as I was saying I wish the southern was jalapeno, you said the other one would be jalapeno 😂❤️ love your videos...

    Way to address a polarizing subject. But my family is from the south and has been eating sweet cornbread for years. There are other people from the south who also eat sweetened. When you get right down to it, how you eat it is a reflection of where you're from and how your family grew up.

    What do you mean when you say "the butter will be cooled down enough to play nice with eggs"? Is there some other confidential livestream we should be aware of? ;) But seriously, what do you mean?
