Granddad's Corn Pone

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Bunlady

This recipe was passed on to me by my mother from her father. It is old-fashioned corn bread that is baked in a 9 x 13 pan. We always served this with Chili when I was a child and I still do today. Just be sure to mix it with a spoon, NO ELECTRIC MIXERS.

How can anything so simple be so good! I made this to go with some Morrocan stew (how's that for fusion cuisine). My only change was to sub soy milk for the regular milk since I didn't want this to be dairy. The corn flavor held up well under all those spices in the stew. It was a great base for a great meal, thanks for sharing!
