My Mama's Buttermilk Cornbread

Tammy Raynes


This is another recipe from my Mama. She would make either this or Cathead Biscuits for each meal. I'll have my Mama's Cathead Biscuit recipe on here too soon. She taught me how to cook when I was around 10 years old.

Mama had 7 kids and each of us can cook almost like her. Course no one EVER cooks as good as Mama.
