Did You Get 5/5? You’re A TRUE Grandma!

I’ve got a real treat for you, today! Our readers often request old-fashioned recipes; you know, the kind of recipes our mothers and grandmothers always used to make. I guess vintage cook books are not that easy to find these days. Or maybe it’s just that people search for online recipes nowadays, instead of “plain old books”. Whatever the case, these delicious vintage recipes are amazing!

I can remember my grandmother making some of these – oh, how I wish I could go back to those days and help her out in the kitchen, like I always used to! She was my greatest inspiration when it comes to cooking and baking. I’m pretty sure many of you feel the same way about your grandmothers.

Maybe you’ve already tried some of these recipes, or have made your own version of them? I would love to hear about it in the comments below! And feel free to share if you’ve made some tasty adjustments and you think it turned out even better than the original recipe!

A couple of weeks ago, my 15-year-old daughter begged me to make a pone of cornbread. I did and she took it in her lunch until it was gone. The kids asked her what it was! I was going to make pinto beans to go with it, but someone had my slow cooker and I couldn’t cook them while we were gone. I have finally gotten to the point where I can put a little of this and that together to make a good pone of cornbread. And I’m under 40!!!

Corn pone is simply corn bread that doesn’t have eggs and is usually shaped as an oval. There are actually special cast iron pans that have compartments that are shaped like ears of corn.

Lol all yall are asking what a pone is when it clearly has been explained what it is, pay attention people!!!!

The pone of bread is the whole cake not cut. You can also make biscuits in a pone or individual biscuits. Some people cut them. Others just break the pone and get how much they want. Breaking bread together.
