    Patty Mae's Note:

    This is THE real Southern cornbread, at least in my family. This is the way my mother and grandmothers made it, with stone-ground white cornmeal and buttermilk. Baking it in a preheated cast-iron skillet gives it a wonderful toasty brown crust. If your skillet is seasoned properly the cornbread will never stick - it will fall right out of the skillet when you turn it over. I love it right out of the oven slathered with butter - it's a slice of heaven!

      I'm sure this is awesome cornbread,The reason I'm not reviewing it is I "assumed" by using self-rising cornmeal,I didnt need the baking powder or baking soda,I was wrong.Next time I will use the soda & powder.

      The BEST cornbread I've ever had in my life! I actually used regular yellow cornmeal and thought it was just fine. Thank you, Patty Mae, for the new family favorite at my house.

      This was really good. I am always looking for a cornbread recipe without flour. I followed the recipe, (with the exception of the butter), and it was VERY thin. So much so that I added a half cup more cornmeal. I am not sure I needed to, or if it would have turned out fine, I just panicked! Even without the butter, it turned out VERY moist and very tasty! Oh, I also subbed Splenda for the sugar! I will definately make this again. Thanks!
