This is the second recipe I am sharing from my mother’s recipes and this selection is the recipe for cornbread, good Southern cornbread.
I’m going to cook my mother’s recipes one by one and document the journey. When I’m finished – I will have a recipe book waiting to be put together. This is a pretty easy one, but it is something every Southerner should know to make. And, cornbread should alway be cooked in cast-iron. In fact, if you look closely, you can see the pan I used actually makes corn shaped cornbread – how cool is that???? It was great to come across this pan – because it came already seasoned.
If you don’t know about seasoning cast-iron cookware – you can read about it here. This is a sacred tradition in a Southern household. In fact, I had a houseguest that wanted to cook while here. When they departed, I discovered to my HORROR my favorite cast iron skillet had been washed!!!!! I know the guest was trying to be kind, but I will never allow that to happen again.
