If you’re wanting to make cornbread during the fall or winter seasons, this Maple-Cranberry Cornbread is perfect for those times of the year! It has a light sweetness from the maple syrup and brown sugar mixed into the batter, plus the nice tartness of the fresh cranberries—so you have a combination of lightly-sweet and tart flavors!

You could serve this cornbread at breakfast or brunch. It tastes great on it’s own or with some butter, but if you want to amplify the maple flavor, drizzle a little pure maple syrup over the top of the cornbread when serving! It's really yummy with the extra maple syrup, so I definitely recommend that! :)
