    Memories of mama's cornbread

    My husband was born and raised in rural Georgia in the 40's. He has very distinct memories of cornbread made with just corn meal from corn they grew and had ground by the local mill, and water in a skillet on top of the wood burning stove. I would love to duplicate this for him. He says it was only about an inch thick when done. I'm sure it must have had some leavening in there somewhere and some flour, but it wouldn't be like modern recipes; which are more like cake than bread. Does anyone have an idea what he might be talking about?

    Hey...adjust the recipe that I sent you. Use bacon grease or drippings and water instead of milk. I remember baking soda and powder but not sure what she used. We had syrup on the cornbread.

    I suspect that Corn Dodger (link) might be the old-timey recipe he's remembering. If that's not it, see if any of these will work for you, Rox
    Johnny Cake
    Hasty Pudding
    Hot Water Cornbread

    If you give any of them a try, recipe reviews are very much appreciated! icon_smile.gif
