I first made this with my grandmother while standing on a stool. She made this everyday for dinner, (lunch for you Yankees). My grandfather would often just have leftover cornbread and sweet milk at night when coming in from a day in the fields. He was often to tired for more than that. My grandmother never used any sweetener in her cornbread. I have added it as my family likes a little honey in theirs. Cooking on stovetop kept house cooler in summer. They no longer sell these "vintage double omelet fry pan" but you can find them on EBay for about $45.
