This is the recipe I've used for years to make Fried Cornbread. I found the original recipe on the back of a bag of Martha White Yellow Cornmeal Self-Rising Cornmeal Mix, but I changed the type of milk that was used.If you like you could add a bit of finely chopped onion to the batter but try the way it's written first and see what you think.:) Cooking time is for each cornbread pattie.I had this recipe submitted to Food.com (a.k.a. ZAAR ) on 2/24/11.But I wanted to post it here on June 1st.2011
