Recipe by jlotterer

This is one of those old southern recipes handed down from generation to generation. My grandmother never measured anything, but this is just about as precise as I can get. This cornbread is made with white cornmeal, and has a slightly salty taste. It goes great with a just about any southern meal, or just break it up in a big glass of milk by itself.
