Golden Northern Cornbread with Bacon
Why This Recipe Works
In perfecting our Northern cornbread recipe, we aimed for a high-rising, moist cornbread, one with a rich corn taste and a handsome golden color. Among the ingredients we tested, we found the best flavor, texture, and rise resulted from a 1:1 ratio of cornmeal to all-purpose flour. We found that a combination of half milk and half buttermilk made for the best cornbread recipe, one with a wonderful taste, a light texture, an appealing yellow-gold interior, and a high rise.
