Recipe by Diana in Atlanta, Ga.
I love this corn bread. It is so southern style. Made in a cast iron skillet. Makes me think of my "Grandmas" country cookin. My grandma always cooked big because of our big family. This will serve a family of 8-9 people. I hope you enjoy the taste of "Grandma Joe's" just as we did...
