Cheddar Buttermilk Cornbread

“This is a delicious cornbread! I don't like mine too sweet, so feel free to add more sugar. You can also add chives, jalapenos, scallions, thyme or anything else you desire! Making these as muffins works good too. This is adapted from a recipe in Bon Appetit magazine, Dec. 2002. I am on a mission to get rid of all of my food mags and put the recipes I like on Zaar. Wish me luck! LOL”
