Just like mama... and grandma... used to make. I learned as a kid but, of course, there was no recipe. Flash forward... after many years of not making cornbread this way and I had no idea where to start. Well, by jingo, this recipe was a PERFECT place to begin. The cornbread was excellent and had a GREAT crust! I used a larger skillet so it was a bit thinner than what mama used to make... but that can be remedied! I think I need to try a different brand of cornmeal as well as what I bought was coarser than I remember... but that, too, is easily remedied. Thanks so much for posting this recipe... I've already shared it w/ my sister!
