This Sour Cream Cornbread recipe is knock your socks off delicious. It will be the perfect sidekick to your holiday meal or your favorite bowl of chili.
I have always loved cornbread; it’s the perfect side to support a hearty bowl of my favorite 3-Ingredient Chili. But to be honest, I never make it from scratch! Maybe I thought it would be too difficult, or it was always just easier to buy the box of mix, but it’s just something I’ve never really done.
My kids and I religiously watch Trisha Yearwood’s cooking show on Food Network and last month she made her grandma’s Skillet Sour Cream Cornbread recipe. It looked and sounded to amazing that I had to try it out for myself. I took her recipe, and updated it to fit what I had in my kitchen, and this beautiful pan of awesomeness was the result.
The sour cream and the creamed corn give this cornbread a moist and creamy texture. It’s hearty enough to stand up to soups and chilis, and pretty enough to accompany your Thanksgiving turkey. It will have your family begging for seconds and thirds, so you might want to make an extra batch!
