Grandmother’s Buttermilk Cornbread

I’m not sure who’s grandmother this recipe belongs to, but I’m glad she shared it with her grandchildren, and I’m glad I get to share it with my family.  This stuff is amazing.  If I’m making soup as an excuse to use up leftovers, or as a way to stretch a small piece of meat, all I have to do to dress up our meal is add this delicious side dish.

Warning:  This is sweet cornbread.  If you don’t like sweet cornbread, then, well, I’ll eat your piece.  And I’ll pray for you, too.  Bless your heart.

I found this recipe years ago online, and I’ve never tried another one.  This is perfection, in my book!
