This is a great cornbread to make over the holidays as well as any day for dinner throughout the year. It has a great flavor and is perfect to share. The presentation is really nice as well since it is prepared in a cast iron skillet. But, it can easily be doubled or tripled by putting it in a normal casserole fish. It is truly delicious and a great addition to any meal.

This is my sister Barb’s recipe. It is the first thing I ever made for my husband when we first met and he flipped over it. He ate a whole loaf driving home from my house!
The sweet potatoes add just that- a unique flavor unlike any other combination of flavors I have tried. And it is absolutely true that this stays crusty on the outside and moist on the inside. Weird, I know, but true!
