Home-style cornbread is a southern tradition that goes great with fried chicken or other comfort foods. This recipe is simple to make and will be the perfect accompaniment at dinner. For a different approach, it is possible to use this recipe to form muffins as well. However, to get the real down-home flavor, the cornbread should be baked in a cast iron skillet.
