"cornbread! ain't nothin wrong with that..."

so, sunday was sort of a cooking rampage, i made regular bread, cornbread and cookies. the cornbread and cookies were for my good friend, carter hilton's going away party. moving to BRUSSELS of all places. where they most likely won't have this:

mom's cornbread. i've never had a recipe that i liked more than this old fashioned, delicious corn bread. chris rock was right. "ain't nothin wrong with that."

ok, as requested, here is the recipe. super easy.

1/2 c. butter
2/3 c. sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon soda
1 c. yellow corn meal
1 c. buttermilk
1 c. flour
1/2 t. salt

melt butter in large saucepan, remove from heat and stir in sugar. Add eggs, beat well. combine buttermilk with soda and stir into mixture. add corn meal, flour and salt. stir until well blended. pour into greased 8x8 inch pan. bake approx. 30 minutes at 375°.

i love to eat this with butter and honey or homemade freezer jam.

Your cornbread looks absolutely PERFECT. GOLDEN. Wow.

In my family, we make cornbread ALL THE TIME. But we put ham and pinapple and a layer of brown sugar in the bottom of the pan first. It eats like a meal. And is DIVINE with some corn chowdah.
