    My soup kitchen doesn’t have convection ovens. Can I make this in a regular commercial gas oven and what would the baking time be?

    How many 18x12x2 pans are used for this recipe?

    How big a pan (you call it a SS Hotel pan. I assume SS is stainless steel, but I don't know how big a hotel pan is. Or how many pans you'd need for the full batch.

    Great recipe and just what we were looking for! Our church has been helping supplement the Salvation Army mobile food van in this time of need and have made this cornbread recipe several times for the meal. It is a big hit and we keep getting requests to serve it the next time we go out. It works perfect just as is! Thank you!


Having spent the last 40 years selling recreational equipment in Southern Wisconsin, I have closed my business and finally have time to cook. I never sold anything that anyone ever "had to have". SO NOW I'M LEARNING HOW TO PREPARE THINGS, FOLKS HAVE-TO-HAVE! Been great fun and love to expermint. My wife says I cook weirdsville. But, someone likes my cooking, and that's what is important to me!
