Mexican Cornbread by Margaret Clary

Margaret’s Mexican Cornbread Recipe has been in the family for well over 50 years. Some family members use a regular greased cake pan,  but the Moose Family uses a hot cast iron skillet. If you can not find self rising cornmeal you can use regular but you will need to add 2 teaspoons baking powder. BUT I would try to stick to the family recipe for the best tasting Mexican Cornbread.
