This is a very OLD recipe that makes the most marvelous moist cornbread! I was given this recipe by a dear relative who was a neighbor of mine after I was married. Jeannette taught me so many things about cooking and baking. This was her grandmother's corn pone recipe. Everyone loves it and asks me for the recipe. I have not found a recipe here that is like it. This can be served all year round. It is requested at all family and Church dinners. It does not taste anything like the drier cornbreads. Some area restaurants include pieces of this type of moist pone in their bread baskets. I hope you try it and like it too!
