More About This Recipe

  • How do you like your cornbread? That’s a polarizing question for sure. People tend to fall either in the Southern cornbread camp or the Northern cornbread camp … me? I am Northern all the way.

    So, yes, I love a good sweet cornbread – one that’s subtly sweet, not tooth-achingly sweet. Maple Brown Sugar Cornbread is just that.

    It starts with a bag of Betty Crocker Authentic Cornbread and Muffin Mix, which makes Southern-style cornbread. But you add some maple syrup and brown sugar to give it that slight sweetness. It’s super fast and absolutely delicious.

    And at this time of year, is there anything that cornbread goes with better than chili? This cornbread, with its tender but firm crumb, is perfect for serving with a big bowl of chili. Looking for a great chili recipe? Check out the Chili Recipes Collection for several fabulous ideas.
