    Chef shapeweaver �'s Note:

    This is the recipe I've used for years to make Fried Cornbread,and thanks to Connie Lea asking about it I'm going to post it.:) I found the original recipe on the back of a bag of Martha White Yellow Cornmeal Self-Rising Cornmeal Mix, but I changed the type of milk that was used.If you like you could add a bit of finely chopped onion to the batter but try the way it's written first and see what you think.:) Cooking time is for each cornbread pattie.

      Wow - these are so good. I screwed up and added 1/2 cup shortening to the mix instead of 1/4 cup (I'm bad about not reading the recipe all the way through before I start), but they were still super good. Next time though I will cut back to the 1/4 cup. I also used buttermilk, just cause I love buttermilk in biscuits and pancakes, etc. I also had a little trouble cooking the first few but finally got the hang of it and they turned out perfectly.

      Thanks so much Chef shapeweaver for posting. I will definitely be making again and again.
