Easy southern hot water cornbread made with a few ingredients on the stove top!
Hot water cornbread has got to be one of my most requested recipes. Although I uploaded a recipe for it many years ago on my YouTube channel, a lot of people missed the video. Also, I have since then revised my recipe for hot water cornbread since then so it’s time that I uploaded another.
What is hot water cornbread? Well It’s cornbread! LOL! However, it calls for a less ingredients than baked cornbread.
Hot water cornbread is fried cornbread ( although, I’ve heard that some people actually bake it… that’s a no! JUST NO!). It pairs well with southern beans, greens, and cabbage( Feel free to serve some sweet tea to go with your meal!).
