My Granny Finally Gave Up Her Famous Cornbread Recipe…Grab a Pen and Paper!

For years and years me and my brother BEGGED my granny to give us her famous cornbread recipe. We would eat it on every holiday and always go back for seconds.

Whenever we would ask for the recipe, she told us it was a family secret. Of course, I always reminded her that we ARE family, but that didn’t seem to work.

Over the weekend though, she sat me down and gave me one of her old cookbooks (handwritten, of course) and inside was her famous cornbread recipe!! SCORE!

I’m sharing it with you because I truly think cooking is the way to make friends…so get a pen and paper and prepare to be wowed!
