“My friend Annette brought this to a theatre potluck and I had to get the recipe. Better than the typical cornbread casserole, I have taken it to numerous potlucks and gatherings, and am always asked for the recipe. My family loves this. Although not a sweet cake, per se, it does make one feel that you've had a treat.”
1 9x13 pan
