    Chef-Boy-I-Be Illinois's Note:

    I love corn bread. Not the stuff out of a box, but the real thing. I went to make some last night and discovered I had no baking powder! So I looked in my Joy of Cooking for substitutions for baking powder, and the resulting corn bread was the best I've tasted. Try it, I think you'll agree!

      I wouldn't deter anyone from making this, but oh my... if you think this is good cornbread than you've never had good cornbread. Sorry! haha It's a reasonable substitute I suppose, but I won't be making it again.

      I'm one of those who can do without a lot of salt, so with cut it way back & had no problem with the resulting cornbread, which is ABSOLUTELY GREAT & FULL OF FLAVOR! Certainly is a make-again kind of recipe, & thanks for sharing it! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
