I've had it. Lived In MS for years...had it in restaurants, church potlucks, friends houses, the works. To me it always tasted like bland cardboard when you leave the sugar out.

With a palate like that, adding sugar would only make it taste like sweetened cardboard.\_(:\)_/

^^^ it's bread and you eat with something, usually. corn muffins are sweet. i can deal with that. cornbread shouldn't be sweet, but i still use one teaspoon of sugar when i make it.

I find cornbread drier without sugar, too (if not all the way to "like cardboard"). I put in 1/4 cup sugar per 1 cup each of cornmeal, flour, and milk, and 1/4 cup shortening (usually butter). I usually double the recipe to make enough to fill a half-sheet pan.

Is 'sunflour' a brand name, or is there sunflower meal in the cornmeal?

I had asked if any of you southerners, had recipes for good cornbread stuffing...
it was deleted...b/c apparently they said there are other threads out there about cornbread stuffing?

Well, this thread is about cornbread, and I am unable to find a thread on cornbread stuffing...so if anyone knows where it is, please can you leave a link...?

In my family, no one makes cornbread stuffing. We make cornbread dressing. We don't stuff the turkey, we bake the dressing in a pan and serve with giblet gravy. I suspect our dressing is the same as stuffing. Search this site for cornbread dressing.

First question...
Wet or dry?

Second question...
Sausage or no sausage?


This recipe covers the wet/dry sausage/no sausage variants...

I'm a Jiffy Cornbread gal. DH prefers a sweet cornbread mix - but either way he covers it with syrup.
