This is one we absolutely enjoyed. I did use buttermilk, as I thought it would add some flavor. Nonetheless, the flavor was great. Truly 1 delicious meal. Wouldn't change a thing. Made for 1-2-3 hits.

True Southern cornbread. Here's where mightyro and I differ---I use yellow stone-grounded cornmeal from a mill not far from my home--still in operation! The pork rind added a down-home dimension; I just left the drippings in the cast iron skillet and poured the batter right over the top; then sprinkled with the crumbled cracklins...cholestrol, be da*n--delicious!

Come on!!! this was the wroth creaklin' bread I ever made and put in my mouth. 1st you call for 1 1/2 cups of cornmeal and also 1 cup of flour with ONLY 1 cup of milk, (this must have been a typo), because It only came out doughy; which I had to add more milk to make it consistency to be smooth.
I have to give it to you it came out to be a pretty golden brown; but the taste was more of a bread taste of flour not of the corn bread taste.
I am from the Deep South of Georgia, and this would not have cut it where I come from.
