Corn flavor (maybe with some jalapeno too) and crispy. Best cornmeal I've found is Lamb's. It's a pretty coarse grind and just meal..no flour, baking powder or anything else added.

I guess it's my biggest shame. My name is fence, I'm from Texas , and I don't care for cornbread......

The regular stuff, not sweet. The cast iron skillet needs to have scorching hot grease in it to fry the batter on the bottom when you pour it. Butter. Lots of real butter.

Cornbread - like My Kentucky Grandmother made. First, it can only be baked in a cast iron skillet. Greased with bacon grease. One that has been seasoned and handed down over a couple generations. The bigger the skillet the better. Black as a lump of coal. Smooth as a baby's bottom.

Corn must be ground coarse. Salt, baking soda, maybe an egg or little milk. SUGAR is strictly forbidden. That is not cornbread - it's cake. Keep it simple and get it as brown, almost burnt, as you can.

Jiffy cornbread mix cooked like a cake topped with butter. I eat it as breakfast with my coffee regular. I like fried cornbread but not with my coffee.
