Corn Bread Quotes

“The North thinks it know how to make corn bread, but this is a gross superstition. Perhaps no bread in the world is quite as good as Southern corn bread, and perhaps no bread in the world is quite as bad as the Northern imitation of it.”

Mark Twain
(Samuel Langhorne Clemens) (1835-1910)
From an autobiographical sketch, 1898


“Her corn-cake, in all its varieties of hoe-cake, dodgers, muffins and other species too numerous to mention, was a sublime mystery to all less practised compounders.”

Harriet Beecher Stowe, 'Uncle Tom's Cabin' (1852)


“The hot biscuit runs a poor second to cornbread, but is considered of higher social caste. We abrogate and deprecate cornbread when we have guests, but we should consider ourselves deficient in hospitality if we served a company meal without hot biscuits.”

Majorie Kinnan Rawlings, 'Cross Creek' (1942)
