Crispy, lacy cornbread is so easy to make! You don’t even need a precise recipe. You just need to understand the principles of how it’s made. You’re using regular corn meal, salt, and water. If you like sweet cornbread, you can also add sugar.
Some people call this hot water cornbread, but we never bothered with using hot water to make this. It turns out the same with room temperature water.
The main thing to remember is make a batter that you like the taste of and then thin it out to make a crispy cornbread.
The thicker the batter, the thicker (and chewier) your cornbread will be. The thinner the batter, the crisper and thinner the cornbread will be.
