      This is going to be my go-to cornbread for making dressing - crumbly and well-seasoned. Thanks for the posting!

      My husband is from Texas and his family tough me to make hot water cornbread 25 years ago,and this recipe is close to mine except I add a little baking powder so it's not so heavy.

      I love this recipe. It's chewy on the inside with a crispy skin on the outside. The only problem I have with it is it calls for way too much salt for my taste. I usually use half as much as it calls for (but then again, my family doesn't eat much salt, so maybe I just have a low tolerance for it.)

      Still, incredible recipe.
