  1. We love corn bread here -- and it's fun to see a recipe from over a hundred years ago. Looks like not much has changed over the last century.

  2. It definitely doesn't look like much has changed but this looks so simple!! I love corn bread but have never tried to make it--this makes me think that I very easily could. Yum!

  3. We make gluten-free corn bread now, but it's not quite the same! Love corn bread!

  4. Simple, delicious, classic - we all love corn bread!

  5. What a fabulous name ! Fannie Farmer! It would be great if you added this to the Food on Friday: Country Favourites - if you haven't already. Cheers from Carole's Chatter!

  6. Stew and cornbread. Perfect. xoxo, Rocquie
