Native Americans were using ground corn (maize) for food thousands of years before European explorers arrived in the New World. European settlers, especially those who resided in the southern English colonies, learned the original recipes and processes for corn dishes from the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, and Creek, and soon they devised recipes for using cornmeal in breads similar to those made of grains available in Europe.

Cornbread has been called a "cornerstone" of Southern United States cuisine. Many cornbreads are done in a shallow pan but I like to do my cornbread in a regular bread pan then serve it sliced. I find this helps keep it moist longer and it still has the crispy crust which everyone loves. To add extra flavor I always use buttermilk and add sharp cheddar cheese along with Jalapeno peppers.
