    Made this with my 13 year old daughter and as soon as it was out of the oven it was in my bowl broken up and sprinkled with maple syrup.
    My daught buttered hers and we ate the whole batch, right then and there.
    Substituted the buttermilk with milk & lemon juice as we didn’t have any buttermilk. I might try this recipe in the waffle iron. A hit in my house.

    TRUE corn bread does NOT contain sugar of any kind or amount–if it does, it is Johnny Cake, not corn bread!
