1 tsp. sugar
1 1/2 c. boiling water

Directions:
Mix meal, sugar, salt. Grandmother used to sift it together...she said "That is the secret". Take boiling water and pour enough into the meal mix to stick it together. Gently fold it together but make sure it is mixed thoroughly. Take a spoon and spoon it out to the size that you want it. Use a bowl of cold water to dip hands in to keep meal from sticking to your hands. "Do this everytime you make a piece of bread. That way it won't stick to your hands." Fry until it is brown all around.

Personal Notes:
Tammy is the wife of Allen Emerson, the daughter of Raymond and Doris (Mitchell) Hollenshead, and the granddaughter of the late Ray and Fern (Prince) Hollenshead. I bet I helped Fern make this cornbread every week-end. Good memories.
