Ann's Soft and Moist


This recipe is from Ann Marsh, wife of Mike, our firehouse buddy. The cornbread made with this recipe is not like traditinal cornbreads which tend to be dry and coarse. The texture of this cornbead is more cake-like and is very moist and smooth. If you double the recipe, cook each part in its own pan or the centers will never finish cookiing before the edges burn.

It goes very fast at potlucks. Ann says to Enjoy!
