Subject: RE: BS: Help! A SIMPLE Cornbread recipe please.
Mary Garvey......The spoonbread at Berea's Boone Tavern Hotel is well renowned and although several recipes appear here and there for it, this one was the one used by Richard Hougen while he was the Innkeeper there for many years. I can tell you that I know this one is his for a fact as he used both yellow meal and creamed corn. I've eaten there since, but the spoonbread, although good, does not have the sam "flair" as his did. Berea College operates Boone Tavern and it is 90% student run.

(yellow) cornmeal over med. heat to make a mush. Add 3 well beaten
