Connie's Rustic Southern Cornbread

Connie Ottman


This cornbread is so easy to make and is delicious with pinto beans or just butter. Leftovers taste wonderful in a cornbread salad. The recipe has been around my family for as long as I can remember. Mom was a true Southern cook. I like to use white, mill ground cornmeal. This recipe was tweeked to cut the sugar content. If you wish, add a can of drained corn. Enjoy!
