Finally! The perfect cornbread recipe! I think it is suppose to be 1 tablespoon Baking Soda, 1 teaspoon baking powder. This has a very fluffy cake like texture. I divided into 3 and it was perfect amount for my family of four. It was the perfect amount of sweet. I also liked that it used butter flavor shortning. I added a little water to the amount per crisco can (like when you substitute Crisco for butter).
