I'm not a Southerner, but I say NO to sugar in cornbread. However, I love my grits and I do eat them as I eat my white rice - with sugar and soy milk. Yup - I just made everyone cringe - Yankees as well as Southerners. LOL

I can tell you that most places where I eat lunch during the week in north La serves sweetened cornbread. And it is yellow too. I never see any white cornbread.

Grits I can't speak for since about the only place I have those is at Waffle House. Usually I like a little butter salt and pepper with mine.

Sweet cornbread is tastey...but cornbread is commonly made both ways.

Sugar in grits? Yuck.

Sweet yellow cornbread, yes. Sugar in grits? Sacrilege! When we were kids and money was real tight sometimes my mom would serve cold leftover cornbread for breakfast, crumbled up with a bit of sugar and milk poured over it. Every once in a blue moon I find myself craving it that way, maybe for old times sake.

I was born and raised in the South. Cornbread at my family's table was always sweet and we always ate grits with sugar AND cinnamon.

Cornbread is better without sugar, but acceptable with it.

Grits with sugar is criminal. Salt, Pepper, and butter. Unless you have some shrimp, Vidalia onions, and tomatoes that is.

I'm with you, Georgiafrog...and several others. I CAN handle sweet cornbread if it comes right down to it. But NOT sugar on grits. The only thing that belongs on grits is REAL butter and pepper.

I think that is in the Bible somewhere, isn't it...?
