Cornbread with a hint of Bacon

Pat Duran


I was cleaning and straightening out my pantry and found a small amount of cornmeal and I had a can of creamed corn in my hand so this is how this recipe began.
I added eggs, flour, sugar,bacon grease and cinnamon/sugar...and it turned out so delicious ;I served it with honey butter cinnamon.
