It turned out delicious. I did add one tbsp of sugar (I grew up on Jiffy. I had a hard time imagining cornbread with no sugar!). It was great and I think next time I'll be ready to completely omit the sugar. We did not have a skillet so I used an aluminum pan and it worked well.

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! :-)

Delicious! I used bacon drippings and a cast iron pan. I made my own buttermilk with vinegar.Using the cast iron made the cornbread nice and golden brown. Loved it!
