I found this recipe for Waylon Jenning's Cornbread in Gatherings A West Texas Collection of Recipes. It's a great all round corn bread recipe, not too sweet, has lots of corn flavor and bakes up light and buttery. Oil your 10 inch oven well and bake it with 10 coals in a ring around the bottom and cover the lid completely with coals. Give it a peek after 15 minutes, mine was done in exactly 20 minutes. This moist corn bread tastes almost better the next day, tuck this recipe away and give it a try in your dutch oven or cast iron skillet.
