secret to making good cornbread?

Lady_Tenar | Aug 20, 201112:51 PM     27

I make great corn muffins but cornbread is proving somewhat more elusive. I've made it a few times and it's pretty good but often comes out dense. What could be causing this? Over-mixing? Not enough baking powder in the recipe? Or do I just need to change by baking powder? Something else entirely?

Also, does anyone have any recipes they particularly like? I've just tried one I got off the internet--a basic buttermilk batter. But I'm not particularly attached to it and I'd love recommendations. I tend to prefer to less sweet "Southern-style" type but I'm open to all kinds.
