Aunt Marcia's Tennessee Sweet Cornbread

When I was 18, my mother gave me my first cookbook and this is one of the first recipes that I wrote on one of the blank pages. My Aunt Marcia makes the best cornbread in the world. It is even better the next day (if there is any left) crumbled up in a glass of cold buttermilk.

Because I grew up in the southwest and only visited my southern kin in the summertime, I learned to add about 1/4 cup of jalapenos to my Aunt Marcia's recipe. The mix of sweet and hot is great and pleases my palate for both southern and southwestern food.

The recipe here is strictly my Aunt Marcia's recipe.
