She would make this for me all the time.

This was really delicious! I have made thise twice now and the second time I added a can of cream corn and cut down on the milk and it was the best cornbread I have ever had. Thank you and your dear mother for sharing this recipe, your story behind the recipe was very touching as well. My daughter Hannah, who is 5, loved mixing this up with me and when she ate it she told me it was as good as a dessert. :) Thank you!
