1 cup cornmeal
¼ cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
¼ cup butter
1 cup buttermilk
1 ½ cup peeled and grated sweet potato
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter with two forks, a pastry cutter or your fingers until mixture is crumbly.
In a medium mixing bowl beat egg until frothy. Stir in buttermilk and sweet potatoes. Pour mixture into flour mixture stirring just until blended. Pour batter into greased 9x9x2 inch baking dish.

Notes from the Paula Deen Test Kitchen: A moist cornbread with a lovely flavor. Great to serve as a side to your slow cooker recipes. Flavor profiles worked best with pork and beef dishes.Read More From Best Dishes.
