Addie is correct. The corn bread here in SC that i have had was horrible. It was very dry, and has zero taste.

I am assuming this is one reason they love their corn bread down here. They never eat corn bread like bread. Its always used in combination with something else.
Like the gross idea of opening a pint of buttermilk, drinking half of it, then adding crumbled corn bread to make a paste. Yuk on so many levels.
Or its used in stuffing (which I find to be good) or served with soup or beans.
There is no juice in any southern soup once it reaches the table. It is immediately covered with crumbled corn bread and mixed up to make another paste that they just absolutely adore.
I like corn bread with these things. Just not in these things.

I want to make the Mexican corn bread that was provided. But I know for a fact my wife does not like sweet corn bread.
I have everything but the buttermilk. I wonder if regular whole milk will be okay?
We are having the Souths signature dish today. Pinto beans made with ham bone and ham pieces at at the end.
This dish needs corn bread.
And i plan to make something palatable.

RB, you can make buttermilk by adding a bit of vinegar or lemon juice to regular milk.

Yes, I mentioned this to my wife this morning. Any idea as to how much to add, to how much milk? Must it ferment or is it ready immediately for use?
Thanks.

Cornbread?

About a tsp for a cup, I think. You can use it within a few minutes.

This works.

You can also buy buttermilk powder in the baking section of the supermarket. It's great because it lasts for a long time so you're not wasting buttermilk or looking for recipes to use it up. Just measure the powder into the dry ingredients and add the appropriate amount of water to the wet ingredients and you're all set.

I've used the powder too, very convenient. I did find out it should be stored in the fridge after opening. I discovered this after I'd had the powder for a couple years.

I had the same problem with the powdered stuff Dawg. It was also quite expensive, unless you bake a lot.

To make your own buttermilk you'll need a Tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to one cup of milk however.

Which would you add to a cornbread recipe to make it less crumbly ?

More egg, more buttermilk, more oil???

Or, make sure to not over bake it.

Usually mine is good. I always bake in a cast iron pan unless it's muffins.
