“This recipe comes from The Durgin-Park Cookbook. Durgin-Park is a famous Boston restaurant. "Thick, yellow squares of cornbread arrive at the table before every Durgin-Park meal. It is grainy and rough-textured, moist and slightly sweet. Sturdy enough to smear with butter. The secret is mixing it by hand.....a machine makes it too fine, and you end up with cake."”
