Golden Corn Bread!


I made up a batch of this golden corn bread this morning to take to my Mother's for lunch. That along with a roasted chicken, black eyed peas, steamed broccoli and a peach salad made for a tasty AND wholesome meal. (Never mind that the cornbread is NOWHERE NEAR on the South Beach Diet!)

I have been using this recipe from a vintage 1969 Farm Journal Cookbook for years and years! My husband is an excellent cook but he cannot make cornbread to compare to mine! Believe me...he has tried! Of course, I follow the recipe. Perhaps that is why mine turn out every time!

This taste so much better than any mix could and I know there are a lot of good mixes out there. We have 3 pieces left  in the skillet after leaving 2 for Mother. I think Mother and Louis Dean both plan to eat what is left the same way.....an old fashioned meal of cornbread and milk!

I love cornbread and milk for a meal...my grandparent, Leon and Gladys Gresham, use to crumble cornbread into a glass of cold milk for supper. I have never been able to make good cornbread, so we buy it at a little diner here and have it for supper often. Amazing the memories of good times with my grandparents that it brings back to mind each time!

That looks good - I made banana bread and bran muffins the other day. My scratch cornbread always comes out dry - so I use a mix.
