What is your favorite dish that your Grandmother made? This is a question I ask everyone I meet. Yesterday, we had the heating repairman checking out our heater (in anticipation of winter weather for the holiday). So, I asked him the question…..he thought for a minute. He said he loves his Grandmother’s cornbread. I was intrigued! What could be so special about a pan of cornbread? The recipe is quite unusual, but oh, so DELICIOUS! There is a secret ingredient….. This cornbread is so good that I used it for my cornbread dressing this year.
1 cup cornmeal mix
3 heaping spoons of mayonnaise (secret ingredient) – be generous!
Buttermilk – enough to make is soupy
Yep, that’s it. You heat your iron skillet with a little oil. Bake at 450 for 18 minutes. Not one single pan of this cornbread stuck to the pan. It is moist and perfect every time. Sometimes you find the best recipes in unexpected places.
