I was hesitant to try this because it was different than any corn bread I’ve ever made. The proportion of corn meal to flour for one, and then hardly any sugar. Now having made it I’ve decided southerners have it all right about corn bread, and I prefer this to the usual sweet variety. I like to use medium grind cornmeal because of the extra crunch, but any cornmeal can be used. I also like to bake corn bread in a preheated iron skillet because it cuts the baking time in half, and makes for a nice crusty bottom.
