This cornbread recipe is straight from my Grandmothers restaurant. My grandparents owned and operated a small family-style restaurant in the 50's in Northwest Indiana.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together thoroughly.
  2. Pour into either an 8x8-inch pan, or you can use a greased 10-inch cast iron skillet like I do. This works really great.
  3. Bake at 400°F for 20 to 25 minutes or until corn bread is done.
  4. Serve hot and enjoy.

I'm sure this was a popular item on Gladys' menu! This would be a great side to chili, ham steak or fried fish! I melted the butter in an iron skillet in the oven while preheating, used white corn meal (all on hand) and added an extra tablespoon of sugar. Wonderful texture and a great cornbread for anyone likes their cornbread without sweetness. Thank you, Melody Ashcraft!

I would definitely say Grandma knows what she is doing. Served as a side with catfish and collard greens. Easy recipe and so good hot out of the oven with butter and honey. MMMMM! Thank you Melody and Melody's grandma!
