Occasionaly I'll make some of my homemade cornbread and eat it by itself as a meal. Lot's of honey in the batter and cooked in a cast iron skillet, with good butter and whole milk

I can appreciate some good cornbread.

8/10,

no knife
plate too large, not centered on plate

Famous Daves has a cookbook.  Dave mentions how he used to eat cornbread with a glass of buttermilk.  Whoa boy!  How about some honey, jalapeno and a little water in a saucepan for a good glaze?  

+1 point for using the cast iron skillet method instead of the ghey little cup cakes.

Cornbread is not a meal, it's filler or a side.

4/10

No meat, no potatoes, no knife, no napkin, no beer or alcohol...

This is a snack.

Sweet cornbread is good desert food.

8/10

throw in some jalapenos and i'd have given you a 10/10

or 11/10 if you added cheese too

great try but its weak.  I love cornbread but where is the meat.  +1 for real butter.  +1 for whole milk.  +1 for cast iron.

ill give you a good ole'  7 of 10

If your cup said cheers we would have the same one. This is a snack pic. I give it a 6 because I can't stand drinking milk.
Link Posted: 11/19/2008 10:00:33 AM EDT
I've been substituting some creamed corn instead of milk.

Not bad. The honey makes it "Yankee Cornbread", though. Southern cornbread has no sugar.

I'm sure most southerners have had only cornbread for a meal.

1 1/2 cups cornmeal
2 1/2 cups whole or buttermilk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
Honey to taste (never really worked out an amount..)
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil


DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). In a small bowl, combine cornmeal and milk; let stand for 5 minutes. Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan (or fill up a cast iron pan or 2 greased with butter).
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and honey. Mix in the cornmeal mixture, eggs and oil until smooth. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center of the cornbread comes out clean.

I would also check it early just to make sure, some ovens cook really quick. This is the full recipe I usually reduce it

I'd eat it, 10+
Link Posted: 11/19/2008 10:10:59 AM EDT
+1 on cooking it in cast iron skillet.  I recently made the switch from using a regular cake pan, and the difference was dramatic.

I also decided I had better add corn meal and baking powder to my SHTF supplies so I can continue to enjoy the deliciousness even after the general breakdown of social order.

dedfella is correct...  there is nothing better than cornbread crumbled up in a glass with good cold milk over the top...  one of the best poor man meals ever!

Mmm...co'n bred.
8/10

Need to put some cracklins in it.

Ya'll don't know about cracklins? They are like bacon, only not as healthy.
Cracklins

Corn bread with pintos and ham hocks, I can hear my arteries harden.

Cornbread, for me, is either heaven or hell.

Dry, crumbly cornbread:

Soggy, semi-liquid cornbread:

Why is that cornbread stuck to the bottom of your cast iron skillet?

A lot of people don't know this, but cornbread is probably the main reason the South won The War Between the States. It's true!

+ for the GOB (God's Own Butter).

Sorghum syrup has more arn in it. If you can find some, the darker the better. Molassas is a close substitute.

Or break it up, put it in a glass of buttermilk and eat it with a spoon.

Don't know really, I did use a fork to get it out though becase I didn't have a spatula handy. Sometimes it sticks a little and sometimes it doesn't, even though I grease the pan well.
