Thanks for posting. I once had this recipe committed to memory, but it has been misplaced in the vast shuffle of data now stored there. Since my paperback issue of Fannie Farmer is also misplaced, I can now satisfy my craving for really great corn bread! I like the buttermilk version as well as using bacon fat. If you're going to satisfy a craving for something wonderful, go big!
Greatest cornbread in the history of cornbread recipes :) This is the same one my mom made growing up from her trusty Fannie Farmer cookbook. Tonight for the first time ever I made them in a waffle iron for the first time every and will serve with taco seasoned shredded chicken and taco toppings. No other cornbread recipe compares to this one!
I have made a lot of corn bread and this is one of the best!! I drizzled a bit of honey over the top to make sure it was sweet enough, but it was not needed, plenty sweet on it's own! Going to make this again next weekend to go along with chili for guests :) SO GOOD! Kids requested it as well...that's always a plus!
