Gospel Buns

Steve is a little bit in love with cornbread. I think one of his biggest regrets is that our trip to Tennessee last year didn't coincide with the National Cornbread Festival. (Fortunately, the song on the website is almost good enough for him as a cultural experience.)

This was one of Steve's recent projects--homemade cornbread mix with a stylish, Steve-produced label.


And because he loves the cornbread so much, I bought him Jeremy Jackson's, The Cornbread Book: A Love Story with Recipes for Christmas. I'd read it and enjoyed it and blogged about it before, but I only ever made one recipe from it. Today we made the gospel buns. Oh, my! The recipe makes such a pleasant, soft dough and then it cooks up as buns that taste a bit like English muffins except so much better. Steve ate them topped with poached eggs but I just ate mine warm with butter. Pillows of yum. Thank you, Jeremy Jackson.

(Next time I need to go easy on the corn meal sprinkling.)

Cornbread? It's got to be his Okie heritage coming though. Of course I love it too be have never found a decent recipe.

Love the label. And those Gospel Buns look delish. Recipe please!?

Theresa and Lady Susan--I'm currently too lazy to look up the recipe, but I'll get back to you on that.

KWB--We have LOTS of recipes for it!

Anonymous--Please not that it is actually Uncle Steve's Miracle Corn Mix Food Product and you can buy it for the low, low price of £9.95. Or, if we're friends or relatives, for free by visiting us in Scotland.
