Hannah’s Cornbread


Hannah, our new Volunteer Resources Assistant, loves barbecue- but she can’t eat ribs without cornbread. This recipe, which her family has been making for as long as she can remember, is her favorite because the cornbread comes out so flavorful and moist. With a little bit of honey, it also makes a tasty breakfast or dessert!
