Southern Spoon Bread

Recipe by mollypaul

Rather like a savory pudding, this comes from the Southern chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947

This was really good. I had forgotten I didn't having baking powder so was happy to find this recipe. It took 15 minutes longer to cook, at least, than the recipe indicated. I couldn't tell what the texture was supposed to be. I will add sugar next time. Tasted delicious mixed into vegetarian chili.
