Here's one of the things my dad used to make (it was a short list, and it also included a simple and amazing oyster stew and the best chocolate fudge in the world). I love this stuff... it's like a dense, very moist cornbread, and unique. I haven't seen a similar recipe for it. Enjoy! Serve with butter.

  • Stir cornmeal, sugar, flour, and salt together in a large bowl.

  • Bring water to a boil in a saucepan and add butter. Stir until melted and blended. Remove from heat and let cool until lukewarm, at least 15 minutes. Add milk and eggs and mix well. Stir in the cornmeal mixture just until combined. Pour into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until top is dry, about 45 minutes. Let cool for 45 minutes before cutting into squares.

Cook's Note:

The leftover pone is also great cut into slabs and pan-fried in butter.

I think we are supposed to add the ingredients in step 3 to the ingredients in step 2. Read More

Made as written and this turned out pretty good. It is very dense but then again, it is supposed to be. I'd cut back on the sugar next time and mine was done in 35 minutes so watch it closely. Read More
