This cornbread is considered a favorite in our family. It was given to me by my mother-in-law. It is a very thick and hearty cornbread and goes well with most anything. You can also add tomatoes and ground beef.

Good flavor but the texture was too much like a corn pudding and not the corn "bread" I was looking for. Read More
