Reviews forAppalachian Corn Bread
"When I made this I left the corn out because I used corn salsa, still tasty!"
"I made this cornbread last night. I shared it with my 89 yr. old neighbor. He absolutely loved it. So did my husband, who is very finicky. I'm from the south and love a bit of sugar in the cornbread. This is amazingly tastier than a simple cornbread recipe and will be my "go to" for cornbread!!"
"This is an interesting corn bread recipe, very different."
"Our family loves it. Great taste and a nice kick with the salsa."
"Sounds like mexican cornbread. People in the South do not put sugar in their cornbread."
