Cornbread is a quick bread made with cornmeal. It originated from Native American but is now a staple in all American kitchens. Traditional cornbread is made with cornmeal, which is a coarser grind of dried corn, even though there are also cornbread versions made with corn flour, a very fine grind.

Cornbread is a delicious and nutritious bread. You can serve it with honey, jam, butter, or any other spread of your choice at breakfast. It also accompanies the lunch and dinner dishes very well. For example, you cannot imagine eating chilly without cornbread. Cornbread casserole is another delicacy that you can make with it.
