Can I freeze this cornbread?

Absolutely! To freeze, let the cornbread cool completely, then wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Store it in an airtight container or a resealable plastic freezer bag for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to enjoy it again, just thaw it at room temperature and reheat it in the oven if desired.
