Eater PDX Lists Petunia’s on Their Cornbread Map!

Petunia’s Pies & Pastries

While it might be cooked in restaurant kitchens everywhere, cornbread is, at the end of the day, a baked good. At Petunia’s Pies & Pastries, sandwiched in between dozens of cupcakes and a bonafide roster of cookies, there is a lone cornbread selection available for purchase alone or with Petunia’s classic chili. The cornbread recipe sticks to the bakery’s high-sugar guns, served with globs of “Mom’s Molasses” and just enough homemade distinction to make it feel like it could have been baked in a Southern mom-and-pop shop.
