    elt's Note:

    This recipe has been in my family for several generations. In Louisiana, we serve this with boiled cabbage, turnip greens, black-eyed peas, and butterbeans. It is delicious, but takes practice to make it just right.

      Boy does this bring back memories! When I was growing up, my Mom would make fried cornbread to go with fish. I decided to try my hand at making it and it was soooo good!! I like mine to have a nice salty flavor. You need to have your oil fairly hot (at least on medium), so it sizzles when you add the batter. I didn't shape mine into balls and flatten, I just spooned mine into the oil and then flattened with the back of the spoon. That's how my Mom did it. Thanks for the recipe, it brought back good memories of home!

      This is a perfect base for fried cornbread. I don't have self-rising cornmeal so I make my own using the simple recipe posted on this site. Tonight I'm going to try it with thawed frozen corn mixed into it. I serve this with vegan chili and greens and everyone loves it.

      i just made some cabbage, corn beef,rice and wanted to make my meal complete with fried corn bread. It wont be right to have this without the fried corn bread. This is one of the many things that my grandmother use to make. There is nothing like some good old soul food.
