    Judedeva's Note:

    This is my mother's recipe. It was on the menu at every cafe she cooked. This cornbread has a great crisp crust yet the inside is soft and tender. It is a perfect accompaniment to soups, stews and the southern standard, "a big ole pot of brown beans."

      We loved this cornbread; it was just as Judedeva described it, crispy on the outside and soft and tender inside. Mr B particularly liked the light texture. The cornbread was super easy to make and the instructions were wonderfully clear. This recipe is a definate keeper and starwise it's a 'sixer'!

      Delicious! I used 2 T. of sugar which added a nice hint of sweetness. I also used my cast iron skillet which gave a superior crust. DH really enjoyed this cornbread; he had two pieces. I served it with chili and it was just right. Lovely and moist; not crumbly. Easy to make too!
