Aunt Bernice's Cornbread
35 mins (prep 10, cooking 25)
9 ingredients
8 servings
I received this recipe from my cousin Leslie when putting together our family cookbook. The recipe belonged to her grandmother, Bernice Peters Chastain (my grandpa's sister). She said that she originally used white cornmeal, but her family always thought it looked "anemic" so they used yellow cornmeal. I believe this is the perfect southern cornbread recipe! It's actually the only cornbread that my step-son will eat!
