Yummy yellow cornbread the old fashioned way. This is my grandmothers recipe and according to my mom I posted it wrong so here are the revisions. You must use buttermilk for the flavor.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix corn meal, baking soda, and salt together.
  2. Add buttermilk, and egg yolks, beat with cornmeal mix.
  3. Add in melted margarine while mixing.
  4. Beat egg whites until stiff (important).
  5. Gently fold in just enough to mix thoroughly.
  6. Cook at 450°F until done, 20-30 minutes.

Fantastic! There are so many variations of cornbread - course, light, sweet, not so sweet, spicy, etc. For me and my family this is the best. Great flavor and a wonderful texture due to the beating of the separate egg whites. The hubby has already asked when I will be making it again.
