Recipe by lazy gourmet
This is a type of cornbread, you have to try it. Best made in the classic cast iron skillet!

I'm a true blue Bermudian and used to make this all the time and decided to whip up a batch as I haven't made it in awhile...I needed a little reminder on the proportions of the ingredients and ended up here! I did it the way my mom used to by adding a little cornmeal to the mix. I also rub butter into the dry mixture-it gives the bread more taste and makes it really moist. I also use heavy cream instead of regular milk which also makes the bread more moist and tastier.<br/><br/>Someone here said they remove the salt because they like sweetness...I think it's important to add salt for flavour-it just adds a little something and doesn't make the mixture salty at all. If one likes sweetness, maybe add more sugar but it's important to add the salt!<br/><br/>This johnny bread is so good...we like to eat it with sharp cheddar cheese-deelish!
