I am currently living in Poland and I needed to make cornbread for the school I am teaching at. I was able to find a very fine corn flour that I am trying with this recipe. I was struggling to find all the ingredients here but thankfully I stumbled across your recipe and it has everything I have. Plus you already converted everything. THANK YOU SOOO MUCH! This was a BIG lifesaver.

I'm still no closer to understanding how I'm supposed to alter this recipe on the back of the Jiffy Corn Muffin box, but I've learned enough to get me through dinner tomorrow night. So thanks for that, all of ye above.

However, I'm a little disappointed in how you all are conducting yourselves. Because everybody else seems to think it's important to tell you their personal background, I'll offer that I've lived in Mississippi, Louisiana, and Arkansas (only briefly as to the latter) my whole life. I've never left. It's not a fancy fairy tale where people sit around drinking tea on front porches all day every day we just do it when the weather is tolerable (less often than you'd think). But we do tend to care very deeply about our traditions. I fear some of you may have misinterpreted Ms. Lutie's tone perchance. I understand I run into ladies like her every day where I live (Jackson, MS). You think she's talking to you like you're a child, maybe the child of a lady at church she doesn't care for, and she's telling you how dumb your mom is for adding sugar or using a store-bought mix. That might be exactly how she feels saying it. The truth is, it's nice to think you're so right about something it might as well be in the Bible. Around here, we'll preach about anything, but food plays a big part of our religious practices too (don't call any southerner on a Sunday at 12:15 p.m. because she's either at Popeye's or Picadilly's).

And yes, southern food is saltier, because we like decadence in our flavor. It does have too much lard, because most of us can't afford to eat richly often and we don't mind a few extra pounds to love. And most of the food that makes us feel the most comfortable grew out of some of the strongest and most resilient spirits to ever live in the South (that is, slaves, not the soldiers who actually ended up learning to cook on the cheap from the former after the Confederacy fell). But feel free to refine the recipes if you like. To be perfectly honest, Lutie's recipe just doesn't sound like much fun to me, but I like lots of ingredients and lots of sugar. I'm planning on using honey myself.

As for you all getting so heated over a stranger preaching about her "right" way, forgive me for saying you should stop being such a wimp. Dozens of people have come onto this forum and contradicted the others' "right" ways of cooking frickin cornbread. Calm down, children. Are you truly so offended? Over sugar? That a strange lady living thousands of miles away and not remotely interested in coming back to this site would tell you that adding sugar to cornbread is a dishonor to your family - what, are you gonna cry? Jeez.

Here's a bit of advice. If you get so mad you find yourself attacking the keyboard with your fingers, knocking into a few extraneous collateral keys and misspelling all of your rage, stop and then hold down backspace. Come up with something useful, that will add to the value of the conversation, and then hit period.

And now I'm done preaching. And I'll never come back to this site. Why do a few rude apples always spoil the bunch?

I've tried many cornbread recipes, but I keep coming back to the Albers recipe. It's my favorite. Thanks for posting it.

Whatever the problem with F to C conversion, I liked the concept of giving the broad chart of heating. This will help us to bring the various color on the bread. Nice recipe. Regards, ALex
