The very same recipe my Mom and all her sisters and my Maw-Maw's used. We are not real fond of "sweet" cornbread. This tasted just like my MawMaw made it. Thanks for posting, now I don't have to post & can print out for my friends who want to know how I make my cornbread. Made for Rajun/Cajun/Southern Photo Tag game 2009.
