That question was posed to Eddie Murphy by Michael Taliferro in the film “Life”. It has become a catch phrase in our household when cornbread appears on the table.
I wanted to put the URL to the clip from the movie, but the language is beyond objectionable, so suffice to say that if someone asks to have your “cone-bread”, it’s probably a good idea to turn it over to him forthwith.
I usually make just half a recipe at a time because we don’t get it all eaten up very quickly. The picture above shows the four pieces that we would eat at dinner – except that Ms. Piggy already had one of hers! ;-> I have a really hard time resisting fresh-out-of-the oven bread products, so I don’t even try.
Day-old cornbread is especially delicious cut in half to expose the insides, and then carefully toasted in the toaster oven to an even brown, and then slathered in butter. Honey is good, too, but just plain butter on crispy cornbread is a favorite treat.
PS: I added a VERY close-up headshot of a scaled quail in the ANIMALS SPOTTED page above.
