I found this recipe in an old church cookbook that my aunt in North Carolina gave me.

Top Review by Geema

Those church cookbooks often have delicious recipes...and this is one of them. I have never beaten egg whites for corn bread before, and it worked well to make the corn bread nice and light. I noticed that there was very little butter or oil, and was pleased to discover that the bread baked up nice and moist. Seems like the perfect, classic recipe for Southern corn bread. Thanks for discovering it and sharing it with us.
