When I was growing up we always had biscuits for breakfast, and corn bread for supper, , we didn't call it dinner like it is commonly referred to now, and this recipe is one that my mama made with buttermilk, she had other recipes, but this is the one she used to make the Buttermilk Corn Bread. We loved it hot from the wood stove, with butter, we had it with greens and beans, Peas, & Smothered cabbage, a staple in the South. These were vegetables grown in our garden.
