    Mr. "T"'s Note:

    This recipe was my Grandmothers which I got from my mother. I added to it and made what I think is the best tasting cornbread that has ever been (just my opinion). I have made this for my family for years and also have used this same recipe to make 500 little 1 oz muffins that we use in Chili cookoffs as well as in Brunswick Stew cookoffs. This recipe is for a batch that will make a large 10" cast Iron skillet of cornbread or will make about 5 dozen of the 1oz muffins. Hope you enjoy. Mr. "T"
