I've always made cornbread the Martha White way until I found this recipe. My hubby prefers "unsweet" cornbread, but I like it this way, especially when making cornbread salad.

No package here - purely homemade!

They keys are bacon grease, buttermilk (not sweet milk), and a cast iron skillet!

The Southern way!

How to Make Golden Sweet Cornbread

Step-by-Step
