To me, there is only one way to have cornbread and this is it. Most people today will say fried cornbread; however one of my great-aunts always called it Hoe cakes. I was told during "going west" these were fried on the blade of a hoe on an open fire. I don't know if it is true or if she was just pulling my leg!
