Corn bread is not a typical French recipe but we brought this recipe back from a trip in Louisiana years ago where we met with quite a few francophone Cajuns so it feels a little French anyway! And these corn bread are made with so much butter that it could well be a French recipe!
Only 7 ingredients, it’s really easy to make and delicious. I’m giving the recipe for plain corn bread but you can add anything you want to it. I like adding cheddar and chives or sundried tomato and green onions for example. I’m using 3.25% milk but the recipe can be done with buttermilk.
They’re quite dense and are best served toasted with extra butter. Because they’re a little bit sweet and salty, they’re very versatile and I like making them for breakfast either with eggs benny or with blueberry, strawberry or fig jam depending on the mood!
