Southern Corn Bread
My wife is from New York and puts Honey on hers before eating.
Being from the south there is nothing better than adding a pat of butter to the bread before eating.
This goes great with a fresh pot of homemade soup.
Finish it off with a glass of whole milk or buttermilk and crumble a piece of the bread in the glass for desert.
