Maple Cornbread

If you like this recipe, please share!

Maple cornbread is a delicious accompaniment to soups, stews, chowders or chili.

I love cornbread. This maple cornbread will be my third cornbread related recipe on my site and I’m sure it won’t be the last. We were recently in New England and, well, being a foodie, I must buy local goods. That included maple syrup. Real, pure maple syrup. So, when we got home, the first thing I made with the maple syrup was this maple cornbread. Well, I didn’t make it, my boys did. It really makes me happy they want to help in the kitchen. They did a pretty good job too! It was delicious and drizzling a slice with a little maple syrup put it over the top.

Serve this sweeter cornbread with your favorite chili, soup, stew or chowder. We like to serve it with any southern style meal including fried chicken.

Just finished making this, and WOW! Whole family can't stop snacking on it. Suppose to be for dinner. Might not make it to the table. Great flavors. Light. Just a touch of sweetness from the maple syrup.

Love the idea of using maple syrup in cornbread. I always feel cornbread needs a hint of sweetness (don't tell my MIL).

I like my cornbread sweet even for stuffing. I need to try it with the maple!
