Maybe it's because I have my grandmother's cast iron skillet that makes this SO good! I Love cornbread and my fellow of 10 years LOVES this recipe. I got it off Allrecipes but have done a few changes.. Enjoy!

This is very good, but a bit "cake-like" in texture. We are used to a "grittier" texture. I cut the amount of sugar in half, since we like it less sweet. The buttermilk and cream give it a rich flavor. The melted butter gives it a nice bottom crust! Made for Fall 2008 PAC.

This sounds really good...but I noticed in the recipe you wrote heavy cream and in the directions and title you have listed buttermilk..both sound possible.
