    Jessica K's Note:

    Watching my grandpa make cornbread over the years I am now soo sad I never asked him for the recipe, that and his biscuits are now lost forever, I am trying to recreate them and this is the closest I've come to the cornbread. Though it is nowhere near what he made. It is a tweaking of several recipes and of what I remember, and do not add sugar!! I will cry if anyone does!!

      This is an excellent Southern Cornbread recipe. It turned our a little too salty for me, so I think when I make it the next time (and there will be a next time) that I will decrease the salt a little. Thanks for a good moist cornbread recipe!

      Absolutely perfect cornbread. I didn't change a thing. I've been looking for this recipe for years! I didn't grow up making cornbread like so many lucky southern girls do. This recipe got stuck on the inside of a cabinet door - where all the keepers go - until I learn it by heart. Which I will. Thanks!

      Simple to make, delicious & we loved the fact it has no sugar because sweet cornbread seems not quite right when served with chilli. Only changes: butter because we didn't have shortening or similar; and I used plain milk before I realised your recipe said buttermilk. Thanks Jessica for replicating & sharing your Grandpa's recipe, my Hubby wants to make some more now! :-)
