Sweet Milk Cornbread

Sweet Milk Cornbread created by Susie B.

I have used this recipe for thirty years. It is from a 1974 cookbook called "Country Cooking". It was one of Southern Living Magazines books. I have been using oil in place of the butter that was called for in the original recipe for years with good results. The secret to this cornbread is a "screamin' hot" iron skillet, greased only on the bottom, and a hot oven. I serve this with chili, vegetable soups, and tex mex.

    Something is wrong with this recipe. It came out like dough. There be a typo in one of the liquid ingredients....or somehow I got it wrong. Please double-check....

    I made this last night to go with western spaghetti. This was so easy to make and tasted great to boot. I don't own an iron pan of any kind. I had to use the technique of getting the pan hot first. I bet this would be even better with an iron pan. I will definately be making this again!
