I acquired this handwritten recipe on a tattered piece of paper, from my late mother-in-law. I never had the privilege of meeting her, but she must have been an awesome cook. This has become my favorite cornbread recipe.

Very easy cornbread. If you have a smaller oven you may find that 15 minutes is adequate baking time.

This was very easy to make. It was tender and crumbly - a bit on the dry side. Would consider it an average cornbread recipe.
