  • Reviews

  • “This is a nice, all-purpose cornbread recipe.I would prefer it if it called for melted butter, rather than the oil or bacon drippings.”

  • “Great flavour and it rises up beautifully while baking! I used vegetable oil and mixed it with the buttermilk, and then poured the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients. I baked for 45 minutes, and when completely cooled, cut into 20 slices. This is one easy recipe that I will make often!”
