Molasses Cornbread

September 3, 2014Teresa

Molasses Cornbread is a lovely treat you’re family will love. It’s moist because you add both buttermilk and sour cream to the recipe. It has the rich, savory flavor of molasses which permeates the cornbread. On top of that, it’s really easy and is a great accompaniment to soups, stews, chilis or any Tex-Mex main dish.

We were in NYC last month and stayed at the Omni at Berkshire Place in Manhattan. The chef there, Ron Ulczak, was amazing. We had many catered meals while we were there, and all were marvelous. Ron served a cornbread for all of us southerners while we were there. I asked him where a New Yorker learned to cook southern-style. He informed me that he had worked in the Carolinas for several years. He learned to make a lot of great southern recipes while living there. He gave me his cornbread recipe saying it was a compilation of several cornbread recipes.

This recipe does have a strong molasses flavor since it calls for a quarter of a cup. It works really well in this cornbread. But if you aren’t used to molasses you may want to dial back the amount, although it really tasted lovely. It’s scrumptious and mouthwatering served with Herb Roasted Chicken and Vegetable Soup.

I have to admit, it’s really hard for me NOT to like cornbread in any version. I like it with jalapenos, I like it with diced green chilies, I like it sweet, I like it Boston Market-style, I like it with broccoli and I like it with honey. Molasses Cornbread has a really different taste than all of my other cornbread recipes. It also browns up a lot darker than regular cornbread. That said, this is really tasty.

If you’re looking for a different way to make cornbread, then consider this southern-style Molasses Cornbread recipe. If you like molasses in recipes you’ll love this recipe. It’s quick and easy and fairly economical too as a side dish. I could eat this lovely cornbread by the plateful and not have too much! It’s hearty, filling and such satisfying comfort food. You may never look at another cornbread recipe! On the other hand, maybe you’re like me and have to keep 15 or 20 different recipes on hand all the time. 🙂
