Has anyone tried substituting butter for the shortening?

The cornbread will still turn out delicious if you sub in 1/4 cup butter for the shortening. It really won't make that much of a difference. - EditorBigOven 3m ago

If shortening is not available, you can use 1/4 cup butter. 1 cup polenta can be used instead of yellow cornmeal. - EditorBigOven 3m ago

Excellent cornbread. Made as directed except used only 2 tablespoons if sugar. Served with pinto beans cooked with ham. Yum!

This cornbread has the texture of cake! Delicious! When I want a more traditional style, I cut the sugar in half, and substitute buttermilk for milk.

Years ago this recipe appeared on the back of OuakerOats cornmeal box--not anymore. Other recipes are not as good. So simple, you can memorize the ingredients!
