Took forever to find this recipe. Down here I grew up hearing it called corn pone. There was a restaurant Aunt Fannies cabin that made this and the recipes I found it wasn't the same. . years later a " Yankee" friend " that's hot water cornbread" lol only difference was the name. Great with gumbo or fish. Anything really crispy outside with the muffin inside. Good ole southern and Yankee yumm You can omit the flour and sub cornmeal back in for gluten free . they will just be a bit denser
