This is a recipe I got from the Alber's brand cornmeal box a number of years ago. It's my favorite cornbread recipe. It's sweet, but not too sweet. They've since changed the recipe on their box and I'm grateful I kept the old one...while the new isn't bad, it's really sweet...it tastes like corn-flavored cake. This is a happy medium. Best served hot with lots of butter (imo), but good cold, also. I'm posting this here for safe-keeping. Note: You can measure out and mix the dry ingredients together and keep in in a tightly closed container for those times when you need to whip up a quick batch of cornbread. For a killer crust on the cornbread, use a cast-iron skillet.
