Homestyle Honey Cornbread

I love cornbread when it’s slightly sweet, totally moist, and bursting with fresh corn. Perfect to pair with chili, fried chicken, or heavens – just all by itself with a little honey and butter, ahhh true comfort food. When my sister and I were younger, my mom used to make these amazing Raspberry Corn Muffins that were incredibly delicate and sweet, a true family favorite. I wanted my cornbread to be just as moist as her muffins so I added sour cream, a little honey, etc… I hope you enjoy!
