Custard Cornbread

Recipe by Bec6206

My grandma Lorraine Stromgren would listen to WCCO Radio's Joyce Lamont as she broadcasted a daily recipe. My grandma would sit by the radio with pencil in hand to write down those recipe favorites! A cookbook was published in 1979 after 10 years of recipes being broadcasted. Of over 2,000 recipes that had been broadcasted, the cookbook has the recipes that were the listeners' favorites.

Wonderful! I had an OLD cookbook that had a recipe called "Spider Cornbread" but it somehow got lost in a move--and this is that recipe. Love it!
