This is a particularly moist, rich cornbread with a crispy crust. It is delicious with chili, vegetable soup and grilled pork chops, collards and summer squash.
I am a firm believer in Duke's mayonnaise. It gives this recipe a delicious richness--do not use low fat mayo! You may use low fat buttermilk and/or sour cream without noticeable effect.
