Haven't tried this particular recipe, but since its almost word for word of my mother's recipe, think its just fine. The only difference is, my mother used hot milk, or hot water to soak the cornmeal in. And my mother used cornbread as a quick dinner bread all the time, she learned from her mother who learned from hers, so its as authentic as you can get! This idea that cornbread is only authentic if its got corn or hot peppers or whatever the fashion is, is a relatively new ides, corn bread is a quick bread, when you haven't got time to make a more time or space consuming bread, cook it in the skillet, and its even a one dish to mix, and cook!
