This looks delicious. These were served quite often at dinner when I was growing up. We also referred to them as corncakes and a few other names. I always loved the way my Mom made these and loved eating them fresh while they are still warm and topped with melted butter. mmmmmmm

This cornbread looks absolutely delicious. The perfect comforting addition to a hearty meal on a crisp autumn day.

This looks really yummy. This recipe would be the perfect addition to a hearty soup recipe.
