Very moist and sweet cornbread, goes great with soups (especially bean soups)!

This was like eating a moist cake. Very delicious. If it weren't so crumbly, I would call it the perfect cornbread. I definitely will make this one again. Thanks. You can also try it this way, it's less crumbly and still good: 3 cups Bisquick, 2 cups milk, 1 1/4 cup sugar, 3 eggs, 2 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp vanilla. It's a Filipino receipe for Bibinka NOT cornbread but tastes the same as this recipe with a lot less crumbs. You can add drops of creamcheese on top and sprinkle with sugar before cooking. Yummy. I'm eating it right now.


Sweet, moist, cake-like cornbread that's absolutely fabulous! Plus it's so easy to put together using buttermilk baking mix (a.k.a Bisquick)! I did "tweak" this a bit to get more of a cornbread flavor. I used 2 & 1/2 cups of buttermilk baking mix and 3/4 cup of cornmeal. I do like a sweet cornbread, but I did cut the sugar back to 3/4 cup and it was plenty sweet. I used 1 cup of buttermilk vs. milk and it baked up nice and golden brown in more like 35 minutes. This was oh so buttery and moist served nice and warm. The leftovers are great for breakfast served with jam!


When I lived in Hawaii, we used to eat at the Yum Yum Tree restaurant specifically because their cornbread was so exceptional. If this isn't their cornbread recipe, it's remarkably similar--and every bit as good. Every time I make this cornbread, folks ask me for the recipe. It's simply the best cornbread I've ever tasted. I think if you try it, you'll agree!
