This is the cornbread I make when we want to eat "country food", which is quite often.

I made this cornbread to go with dinner tonight. I was thinking three stars but the rest of the family gave it four stars. I think if I added a touch of honey or sugar next time I would like it better. The texture was perfect. Oh how I wish I had a cast iron corn bread pan. You know, the one that looks like corn cobs. Reminds me of my childhood. Corn bread always tastes best when cook in one of those pans. ;0) Served with Treebread's Red Beans and Rice.
