I've been using this cornbread recipe for a while now and it always turns out wonderful...make ya wanna slap 'yo Mama - yes it will! Although, I use a half stick real butter in the skillet while the oven is getting hot and wait until the butter browns a little, pour my batter in, and wait exactly 20 minutes, yum, yum!!! Jimmy loves my cornbread and we had it tonight with pork chops, pinto beans, and spinach.

I have made this recipe several times in the past month. Crunchy and delicious outside and moist on the inside. I sub in freshly ground popcornmeal and 100% whole wheat flour (best results with soft white wheat), 3TBS buttermilk powder and 1 cup water which I mix 1/4 c olive oil into. No crumbs left for our family of 7! One tip: don't let the butter brown too much in the skillet.
