I just made this and my whole family loved it!! I will be adding it to my book of favorite recipes! It was easy to make and went really well with our grilled chicken and salad.

I made some slight aterations in this recipe and it came out just like my mama use to make. Use 1/2 c. yellow & 1/2 c. white cornmeal, increase butter to 2 T. (unsalted), add 1 t. baking powder, 1/4 t. baking soda, pour in buttered (unsalted) casserole, increase temp to 375 de. for 45 min. Light & fluffy - mmm-mmm!
