This recipe card for New England Corn Bread appeared in the Ladies Home Journal in 1946.


  1. I made this recipe and it is an INCREDIBLY dense batter but bakes up nice.
  2. The pan I used was a 9″ cast iron skillet so if you use a small skillet, it might perk up a bit and get more height with it.
  3. It’s not a high rising fluffy cornbread but it was perfect to go with the chili I made to pair it with.
