sugar and spice cornbread


If you live in the South, you darn well better know how to make cornbread. People usually have family recipes passed down over generations.
Here I am, nobody to pass me down a recipe, and I still know three different types of cornbread I will post on here!
What does that mean?
Nothing really. Just that some people like a sweet cornbread, some like it sweet and spicy (me) and some like it basic. Some may say that a certain one is a “yankee” way.  I will have to disagree, I don’t think their is a wrong or right way to make it, it is all about what you like!

    1 slice of bacon
    4 large eggs

    Preheat oven to 400
    In a cast iron skillet, cook your bacon on medium heat to render out the fat

    Make a well in your dry ingredient bowl and slowly pour in your wet ingredients
    Mix until well combined
