Molasses Mistake Cornbread

3.3
(19)

A moist cornbread made with molasses. It doesn't use any butter, because it really doesn't need it. I came up with this one night when I was trying to make a cornbread sweetened with molasses. When I was cooking it, I realized that I'd forgotten to put butter in it. I ended up cooking it anyway, and it didn't need any.
