While visiting my cousin Don and his wife Gladys, in Louisiana this summer, she made this great cornbread she served with catfish dinner. Gladys served it with her homemade onion mustard hummus....I have not made this yet ..but when I do I will post a photo, or when you make it you can post yours, if you get to it before I do....She makes this without a recipe so she had to make it again and we figured out the measurements and had it for breakfast with tomatoes, bacon and scrambled was delicious! I hope you try it....
