Aunt Leota's Cornbread
Recently, I discovered a very old recipe for cornbread. Aunt Leota's Cornbread is from my husband's side of the family and he remembers it so well. I only made one change to the recipe and that was to use butter instead of Crisco. This easy cornbread recipe is a keeper. The texture is more cake-like and not too dry. It's comforting, and it will go well with most Southern meals. Give it a try today and discover this magical cornbread recipe.
