Corn Bread

What’s special about this Cornbread is that it is such an easy recipe that my 8-year-old could make it. She had to make something out of corn for her school project and she chose Cornbread. Little did she know that I absolutely love Cornbread  and the only reason I haven’t made at home so far because I know my husband isn’t particularly fond of corn (even this awesome Corn Bhel !)

Since I have never made Cornbread ever, I looked up the recipe and found this one in Allrecipes pretty straightforward and easy and used that to make this soft and spongy Cornbread.
