Mom's Corn Bread

Mom's Corn Bread

 Made  times

"'CORN BREAD just seems to go with chili, especially here in the Southwest, even though Mom's chili is considerably different than the kind that is normally served around here. Mom always made a fresh batch of corn bread when she'd cook up a pot of chili. It just didn't seem right to have one without the other.'"

I liked the texture but I added some honey to the recipe as I felt it needed to be a little sweeter. I'll use it again. Very good either plainwith butter or real maple syrup on top.

I like the consistency but I think it needs a little more sugar. However, I think it's easy to make and the taste is quite acceptable.

It was great. I modified a few things. I replaced shortening with butter and sugar with stevia. It was still very good!

Fell apart easily and enough that you could only pick up pieces - not a whole slice of corn bread

Fantastic cornbread recipe! Made it today with a few tweeks to suit our taste and it came out beautifully! Thanks for this lovely recipe Norma!
