Recipe Note

Here's one of the things my dad used to make (it was a short list, and it also included a simple and amazing oyster stew and the best chocolate fudge in the world). I love this stuff... it's like a dense, very moist cornbread, and unique. I haven't seen a similar recipe for it. Enjoy! Serve with butter.
