A sweet, maple twist on a classic favorite, this homemade Maple Cornbread recipe is made from scratch and takes traditional cornbread to a whole new delicious level.
When I think about the flavors of Fall, I think of cinnamon and apples and pumpkin and maple. And since I shared a delicious sweet apple cornbread recipe last year, it was a no-brainer to try a maple cornbread recipe this year. Now I don't even normally care for cornbread, but these sweet versions that are almost like cake... Mmmmm.....
Now, in my own personal humble opinion, Maple Cornbread is not just a great cornbread recipe, it's the best cornbread recipe. It takes the sweet-salty cornbread classic to a whole new level.
This maple cornbread recipe is made totally from scratch, not from a box. But don't worry. It's not hard at all. Super easy, and just about a half hour to make, start to finish.
