I am not sure if you can call me a southerner. I am from Miami Fl. But my wife is from SC. She loves corn bread. I just started to like it a little bit....

The only southerners in Florida are in northern Florida

A vast majority of folks in Miami have the most southern accent. From about 90 miles south of Key West!

You got that right. Remember in the movie Easy Rider, they went all over the country only to be killed once inside the Florida line.
South Fl. is night and day compared to central and northern Fl.

I have family in Key West still. The house has been sold, but a few cousins and an aunt remain.
Have you ever had "bollito's"? The special Cuban fritter.

When my grandfather would take me fishing, he would point towards the horizon and tell me if I did not behave, he would take me to Cuba, and hand me over to Fidel....LOL

So to get back on subject, anytime I ever tasted cornbread made by a born and bred southerner, it was dry and tasteless. Thank goodness I grew up in New England where they make decent cornbread.

Not really. But in the three years I lived in Texas, the cornbread I tasted was an abomination. Not fit for man or beast. Maybe I just knew lousy cooks down there.

Come on Addie, I bet you'd be insulted if a southerner said New England makes lousy chowda.

True, so true. Kayelle, I watched a friend of mine make cornbread. Cornmeal, a heaping tablespoon of baking powder, very little flour and water. She made a double batch. Some for stuffing and some for the table to eat in place of bread. She informed me that it was her mother's recipe. All I can say is those poor southerners have suffered enough.

[*] Cornmeal, baking powder, water is equivalent to white flour, yeast, water.[*] It *is* bread. Just not European bread.[*] It has Mexican roots. Europeans brought the leavening that turned corn tortillas into a risen bread.[*] Maybe now that you understand it better, you can stop being so insulting.[*] And the topic was, are polenta and cornmeal the same thing?
