There are a lot of transplants in this part of Dixie, so the argument regarding sweet yellow vs savory white cornbread is often hotly debated. Heck, some of the cornbread is as sweet as a pound cake.
My grandpa used to do that. While I love buttermilk cornbread.. DRINKING buttermilk is another story.. And, having chunks of cornbread in it.. I don't even like pulp in my OJ... I start to gag even thinking about that.

i like sweet cornbread for dessert. i went to a restaurant which offered skillet cornbread as a side dish. there was brown sugar and pecans under the sweet cornbread. i can't imagine who thought that would go well with dinner. i ordered it for dessert with a side of ice cream. it was very good cake.

I've made so many different recipes, and while making this one, I thought, "yeah, yeah", but was quit surprised...

Mix all together well. Heat pan to about 400-450 with oil.
Drop a spoon full in for each pattie and fry both sides.

No salt or sugar.

I agree - its not something to be eaten with dinner. Its cake.
It goes well with tea or coffee.

I made the OP's recipe with two changes : half the milk was buttermilk and we added a minced jalapeno pepper to the mix.

We took it to our Boy Scout banquet and everyone loved it. Very moist and , yes, sweet, some ate more for desert.

So glad to hear you all enjoyed it...I'm making it when my kids come home. But I'm going to put less sugar in it...
