Jodie's Corn Bread

JoSele Swopes


This is one of the family favorites, especially when we have beans...or just because....I have been making this for ever and a day.....My family loves to eat it in buttermilk too...though I am not big on buttermilk I love it piled with butter.... the aroma is awesome and the color fantastic with the awesome flavor. It's great to add creamed corn to it, just cut the liquid in half. You might add green chili to it also.
