I found this recipe featured in the American Profile: 1/15/2006 by Stella T. Fort Payne, Ala.
60 years ago!
Who was 86 at the time. She stated it had been in her family for many years. And she started cooking at age nine.
It is the ground pecans that give it the texture of cornbread!
Even though there is no cornmeal in the recipe.
I offer this recipe to you from my collection of recipes.
