Corn Bread

I've always been fascinated with cornbread, I'm not sure why. Maybe it's because it so simple to make, but tastes oh so good. Almost like cake, yet it has it's own distinct taste and texture. I don't make it often, I guess I always forget how yummy it really is. Well actually, I keep forgetting that I found a recipe for cornbread, that I really like, so I don't make it often. I prefer the sweeter cornbread, so it was always disappointing to make some, only for it not to be sweet enough. Then about a year or two ago, someone posted a recipe on Cooking for your Family, so I decided to try it. It was awesome! The bread was moist and sweet. It paired perfectly with spicy chili, yet was sweet enough to eat as a snack. Just the way I like it.

1 Stick of butter
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt

Melt butter in a sauce pan, and add sugar. Cool 2 minutes, then add eggs and beat with an electric hand mixer, or a whisk. In a small cup mix buttermilk and baking soda and add to mixture. Add cornmeal, flour, and salt and mix well. (I also add a can of corn, well drained) Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes in greased 9x9 pan.
