I've given credit to where it is truly due on this cornbread recipe! My dear friend Joni used to make this cornbread and I loved it! I can't eat cornbread any other way now! So...instead of claiming it for my own, I'm giving Miss Joni the credit! It is mouthwatering!! Give it a try! :-)

    **I always keep buttermilk powder on hand when I need it - much easier than wishing I had bought buttermilk to keep in the fridge! :-) If you use bottled buttermilk, use 1 1/2 cups to substitute.
