This recipe is very special to us because it is our mother’s recipe. Of all her recipes, Mama’s Cajun Cornbread is probably her most recognized recipe. Any time there is a gathering or some sort of family event, she makes her famous cornbread and it isn’t long before the whole tray is gone. You have to move quickly when she places her cornbread on the serving table or you’ll come up empty handed. We have a feeling your family and friends will have to do the same if you bring this dish to your next gathering. Enjoy!
