I am very picky about the kind of cornbread that I like. I like it sweet, non-greasy and not to dense, not to fluffy. Sounds more like a personality. But this is not only my favorite cornbread, my extended family loves it as well. Every Halloween for the big extended family party I have to take a huge pan of it to go with Aunt Carla's Chili. Yum! It is a delicious combination especially with honey-butter melting all over the warm cornbread.
