READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Recipewrestler

A favorite recipe from my Grandmother's recipe box. Raised in western Micjigan, I always thought that cornbread should be sweet. I found, when I settled in the South, that it 'taint always so. But I still like it better that way!

I was feeling like something sweet to snack on, so I picked this quick recipe. I only had cinnamon honey but it worked out great. I added 1/2 tsp vanilla, and used melted butter instead of oil. In a pyrex dish it only took 20 minutes at 375 to bake. Perfect. Will make it often I'm sure for a sweet tasting Johnny cake.
