If you really want to amp up the moisture of this dish then go ahead and add a 1/4 cup more pumpkin or sour cream to the batter. You can also trade off some of the cornmeal for all purpose flour to give the dish a more “cakey” texture. I think cornbread is best served when warm and fresh out of the oven so if you’re trying to prep before dinner then whisk the dry ingredients in a bowl and in a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients, prepare the pan and just before dinner whisk it all together and pop into the oven.
