The cornbread was delicious! I also crumbled up the bacon into small bits and add that with the bacon grease. Excellent savory, or with maple syrup or honey, especially with the salty bacon bits mixing with the sweet. I'll try it with chopped jalapenos next time. Can't wait to try the griddle cakes. Real keeper.
My Mother's Recipe, except for the sugar. Which is why I only gave it 4 stars, I am just not fond of sweet cornbread! Otherwise I think this is the greatest recipe I have ever seen, used or had!
this recipe is like a true southern cornbread I would leave out the sugar and serve with butter the crust is what is good and you have to use an iron skillet that is very hot
Disappointing. Ordinary. Needs more sugar or at least serve with honey butter. A touch of fresh herb or heat would help too. Will stick w our old stand by recipe from years ago.
