Raspberry Cornbread- Bursting with Fruit

Updated on March 11, 2014

One of my favorite treats is a nice warm piece of cornbread oozing with butter. I decided to take this one step further using my favorite cornbread recipe and adding fresh raspberries. Then I thought, why not go over the top and add some yummy raspberry preserves swirled in the batter. What I ended up with was a truly delicious cornbread bursting with berries and sweet preserves. I hope you enjoy this Raspberry Cornbread:
