My ex-mother-in-law once made this, but passed away before I could get the recipe from her. After about 35 trial and errors. I finally found the exact ingredients. After it's all mixed, I put in a cool oven to rise before baking. around 150 degrees for an hour. If your oven wont' go that low, I do at 200 for half an hour, or until fully risen.

How To Make non grainy cornbread

  • 1
    Sift all dry ingredients through a flour sifter at least twice. Then pour the wet ingredients into the bowl and stir until it forms a thick batter. DO NOT OVER-STIR Bake in a pre-heated oven at 375 degrees for around 40 minutes or until done. I like to bake this on a lower temp than normal cornbread calls for as it's a very thick bread. I use a 2 inch tall baking pan.

    As I stated earlier, let this rise in a cool oven, about 150-200 degrees, before turning up the heat. I put in the oven as it can fall just like a cake can.
