    2. If I may be so bold – as a Southerner, well, Deep South – Georgia, we never put sugar in our cornbread… Although I can’t vouch for those states close to that Yankee border. It’s slightly salty, savory – just perfect for slathering with butter beans or soaked with turnip greens pot likker.

      That being said, I’ve been know to load it up with cheese and hot peppers, too :). yours looks good! Try upping the oven temp to 450 to 485 – it will give you a better rise on the pone and make a much crispier top.
