I don’t know how this recipe works but it does, every time! The creamy custard that forms between the layers of cornbread makes butter obsolete but I do recommend serving it warm with maple syrup. Reheated in the toaster oven or microwave this cornbread is an excellent breakfast indulgence. —joannE.
