I've tried making cornbread and everytime it's just turned out awful :( I've tried the different recipes, sweet, savoury, light, everything you can imagine and it's just not working out. I end up getting this uber dense, heavy, extremely bland 'thing' that's a good substitute for hockey pucks. I even got a tried-and-tested recipe from my best friend, and she's an amazing cook, and it still didn't work out for me!
I realize Im doing something wrong. But I don't know what? Does anyone have any good tricks for making a good cornbread? Are there little secrets you're supposed to know?
For example, is it like pancake/ banana bread batter, where the more you stir it the heavier it becomes?
Also, is it that my expectations are just too high? I always imagined cornbread to have a fluffy cake-like texture, but this is more like a really heavy (almost cheesecake-like heavy) texture!
If anyone could help me with my cornbread woes, I'd be grateful! I'm determined to make this work!
