Cornbread is ancient food that originated in the Americas. Native Americans used corn for almost everything. And one of the best creations is the humble cornbread.

Over the years, the flavor of cornbread has evolved. The texture is much changed from the time when cornbread just crushed corn kernels, water and fat. One great leap forward in texture was the super-hot cast-iron skillet. It is an essential tool to create a nice crispy and well-baked cornbread.

Cornbread making has evolved from a necessity to something that people love. It is now considered a delicacy and a common side for classic southern dining.

This cornbread recipe is exactly what you want from cornbread — rich corn flavor with a hint of buttery flavor. It's absolutely perfect. But if you want to add additional flavor, you can add some cheddar cheese, pickled peppers or bacon bits to this recipe. You could even add some cranberries and nuts.

1 cup wheat flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt

A no-fail homemade angel food cake that is one of the easiest angel food cake recipes you'll find. It's got a light and fluffy texture you want to dive into. This dessert cake recipe is a must-try and can serve as a great afternoon snack idea.

It's always best to use a bundt pan when making any angel food cake recipe. The delicate structure of the batter makes the tube pan an important component. Another tip to make this recipe a successful one is to slowly add the sugar to the egg whites. Slowly adding the sugar will prevent the air bubbles from deflating, which is an important factor in the fluffiness of this type of recipe.

1 1/4 cups egg whites
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup cake flour
1 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract

Banana Muffin Recipe

An incredibly soft, moist banana muffin recipe made with kitchen and pantry staples. A kid-friendly recipe that makes a great afternoon snack idea.

Although good on its own, you can jazz up this dish. You can substitute brown sugar with the same amount of coconut sugar or granulated sugar. Liquid sweeteners aren't great for this recipe though. A great tip to prevent the top and sides from getting too brown in the baking process is to loosely cover the bread with aluminum foil after 30 minutes. When you take the muffins out of the oven, insert a toothpick into the center. If it comes out clean then the bread is cooked.

1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
2 cups mashed ripe bananas
6 tbsp melted unsalted butter
2/3 cup packed light sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tbsp milk

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
