    One of the few things I just haven't picked up on is cornbread from down here. I grew up eating a soft, sweet kind my Cajun princess calls yellow cake...every so often finds me choking down a piece of the family corn pone I swear I could use as a giant sporting clay....there just ain't enough butter in a cow to get it down...

    I have heard it called an acquired taste. Personally, I can't acquire enough of it! Man, I even like it cold with cold butter smeared on it!

    Went to a church event where the older women had whipped up a batch of the best "yellow cake" cornbread in a long time...I was just this side of getting on bended knee and proposing to the whole lot...my Cajun princess just can't come close....

    It's funny how such a simple thing can have so many variations. Around here it is usually whitish in color. Yellow is seen mostly in restaraunts, I think. I like both, although I prefer the white. Still, if yellow cornbread is served, I'm not dissappointed and I will eat all on my plate and will probably ask for more! I remember when I was a little boy yellow cornbread was called "yankee cornbread" and not in a derogatory way. Don't know why.

    That's what my wife and inlaws call it...I think it's an Amish creation, which would explain a lot as that's my family heritage.

    That does make sense, shaygetz. I sure would not expect it to have originated in an urban area. It's not ... sophisticated enough.
