Craig Weaver – your recipe made me ill just reading it. It’s people like you that have ruined the name of cornbread. Cake mix is for CAKES and sugar should be nowhere NEAR cornbread. I seriously hope that was a joke recipe.

Harolds cracklin’ cornbread by a mile. And sugar in cornbread? Thats just flat out offensive to all native Southerners.

Outstanding cornbread that they serve complimentary to every table that comes in. Kids eat free here in July although it’s a great value anytime………………..turkey and dressing all year long, yummo!
