Daddy's Cornbread

Tina Murphey


My Daddy(Charlie Hall) made the best cornbread. It goes wonderful with just about anything that you would eat cornbread with. Even if you just want a glass of cornbread and milk you can't go wrong with this. Also, I prefer this recipe with buttermilk, but my sister-in-law made it with regular milk and it was very good as well. So, it's up to you on the buttermilk or sweet milk but I'd use whole sweet milk not low fat or fat free...Tina
