    Jostlori's Note:

    A simple Cajun breakfast delicacy, pronounced "coosh-coosh." Warm cane syrup and café au lait would be appropriate accompaniments. This is home cooking at its best. Recipe from the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine the cornmeal, salt, baking powder, milk or water in a bowl and mix to blend. The mixture will be like damp sand.
    2. 2
      Heat the drippings in a cast-iron (preferably) medium-size or large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the corn meal mixture and allow a crust to form on the bottom, much like you would do to make cornbread.
    3. 3
      Reduce the heat to medium and cook, scraping the bottom of the pot with a metal spatula to stir and fold the crust, breaking up large lumps, until the mixture is golden brown and resembles crumbled cornbread, about 15 minutes.
    4. 4
      Serve hot, with cane syrup, or honey drizzled over the top. Maple syrup if you must - LOL!

      This was a very unusual breakfast for us, but nonetheless delicious. I did as some reviewers commented and actually chopped up the bacon I used for dripping into the cornbread couche couche (love the name!). The hit of sweet with savoury was yummy.

      This was a really pleasant surprise for me! For some reason I have always shied away from serving cornbread/cornmeal in a sweet fashion, so I was a little bit wary coming into making the recipe. I don't know what I was worried about, it is truly yummy! I don't eat bacon so I used oil; I imagine that made my dish less savory. No matter, it still tasted great!

      Fried cornbread. Quartered for one serving. I only had pre-cooked bacon which doesn't produce much grease when you warm it in the pan, so I chopped up a piece and added it to the cornmeal mixture, otherwise it would have been too bland. Made for ZWT9.
