There is a wonderful cafe in South Crowley known as the “The Firehouse Cafe.” They were voted as having the “Best Plate Lunch” in Crowley. MawMaw does agree cause she eats there quite a bit. This cornbread recipe was handed down from the owner’s grandmother, Amedia Meaux, to her mother Lerline Meaux. This recipe is great for making cornbread dressing, eating with cracklings, syrup or MawMaw’s favorite, cornbread, milk and fig preserves. But Mawmaw is from the old school too. She loves to drop coffee in her milk for that real great coffee milk flavor! Oh and don’t forget to put a teaspoon of sugar on top of that cornbread!
