Recipe: Sweet Cornbread

A long time favorite, both from my childhood and that of my family now, is sweet cornbread. There is just nothing like sliding cornbread fresh from the oven, slicing a piece open and slathering it with butter and honey. Oh my word, my mouth is just watering and you can guess that dinner tonight will center around cornbread. That's a given!

This recipe is tailor made for butter and honey, drizzled over a steaming hot piece of cornbread like syrup.

So I invite you to throw some chicken in the oven, toss a green salad, boil some ears of corn (bring water to a boil and throw corn in for only 3 minutes. Gets the corn hot but keeps it fresh, crisp and nutritious.) And top the whole thing off with some delicious cornbread.

Lightly grease an 8" skillet.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together until creamy:

2/3 c. White Sugar

be certain to alternate, dumping neither in all at once.
