For me this is Wow!! I am ditching the other corn bread recipes and keeping only this one on hand. This is my favorite cornbread recipe because it uses such a tiny bit of flour. Majority of recipe is cornmeal. What a difference in flavor and texture. Serve with sweetened butter ( just a dab) and in my opinion, you have the truly perfect cornbread. Love, Love, Love this!!!
