This cornbread recipe is very similar to one I made 30 years ago for my boys, except I used molasses or syrup instead of sugar. It is delicious, and makes a wonderful breakfast bread. Also good spread with apple butter or blackberry jam...

This is a sweet, moist bread that serves as an excellent complimentary corn-cake side dish served with mexican dishes. Mexican just is not as good without it. I have found it is also good with chicken.

I made this recipe tonight with a few modifications. I halved the recipe and used 2 eggs and then baked it in an 8X8 pan. I only had a metal pan. Don't know if that would make a difference or not, but it was done in my oven after only 22 minutes. It was a little bit drier than I was hoping for, maybe next time I will leave out a bit of the corn meal. But overall I really liked it!
