Literature & Lore

There are gradations of cornbread. True cornbread is made elegantly with milk and eggs and shortening and is considered, rightly, good enough for any one. Then comes cornpone. It is not so rich, leaving out the eggs and usually the milk, and is made in a skillet on top of the stove." -- Rawlings, Marjorie Kinnan. Cross Creek. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons. 1942.
