    Mirj's Note:

    I've been experimenting with cornbread recipes lately and this is one of my favorites. I don't bake it in a skillet, I use a regular 8 x 8 pan, and it comes out fine. Really yummy!

      Wonderful cornbread Mirj! This was part of my 9/11 memorial dinner. I didn't change a thing, except to double the recipe and make two pans. This complimented the meatloaf and mashed potatoes recipes I made perfectly. True American food!

      A wonderful recipe for cornbread. I am always happy to try recipes for Southern cornbread, as there are so many. I liked the crisp bottom of this cornbread. It was very, very, good. Thanks for sharing.

      I had the same result as Marg@Cayman Designs and I used an iron skillet. Not only did the bottom of the cornbread never crisp up, the bottom 1/4" remained soggy after over an hour of baking. While I didn't really care for it, Dh did.
