This is very good my family loved it. Traditionalists should be aware that it is not your standard "southern" cornbread...it is rich and a little sweet and almost cakelike rather than crumbly. I am sure I will make it again it was such a hit it is very moist and a 9X13 pan is a lot of cornbread so it would be great for a crowd. Like another reviewer I had to bake it another 15-20 minutes longer than called for. 30 minutes does not seem to be long enough for such a big pan and it was wet in the middle at 30 minutes. It was perfect at 50 minutes but I would start watching it at 40 to be on the safe side. I did not have any frozen corn but I had a can of creamed corn and I put that in it worked great and gave some extra texture without having big kernals of corn. I kept the rest of the recipe exactly as written. A winner. Read More

I don't know what happened! Reading the reviews I thought for sure this would be it! What a disappointment. First I cut back the sugar to 3/4C..I'm glad I did as it was STILL a bit too sweet for me. Also it had an overly "butter" flavor. Thats all I could taste butter & sugar. Second Mine crumbled away on me! I had a hard time slicing this and keeping it into wedges. It fell apart. Will not make this again. Read More

I had good results when I cut the recipe in half, using 2 eggs and 1/2 cup milk. Cut all other ingredients exactly in half. I made corn muffins using paper liners sprayed with cooking spray. Mix the wet ingredients, set aside. Mix the dry ingredients. Make a well, stir in wet ingredients along with corn. Mix only until combined. Over mixing will result in a crumbly muffin. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until muffins are golden. Let cool slightly before peeling off paper liner. Read More

This is the best cornbread I've ever had. I decreased the milk by 1/4 cup and used creamed corn. It was moist and delicious. My 2 year old grandson and my husband have almost eaten the whole pan. I hope I have enough left for dressing. Awesome. Read More

The cornbread was moist and delicious. The family went back for seconds. The only thing I found I would do the next time would be to thaw the corn before adding it to the batter. Read More

I followed another reviewer's suggestion of halving and making muffins using 1/2 c milk 2 eggs and half of all other ingredients. I also replaced half of the sugar (1/4 c) with 1/4 c honey. Baked at 350 for 15 mins. Yields 12 muffins when you fill the cups about halfway. Read More

The first time I made it I followed the recipe exactly. Holy Moly yummy! For leftovers cut into squares freeze and microwave for 30-45 sec per piece. Add more butter of course. Sooooo delicious. The second time I followed the modified version (1 cup milk creamed corn)....amazing again. The pieces are tall thick moist cornmeal -buttery goodness. It IS the meal! This cornbread is better than some wedding cakes! Ps.....For the reviewer who said it came out dry and crumbly...you did something wrong. I've made it twice. Easy recipe and perfect texture. I mixed with a handheld electric mixer (no idea if it matters) Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! Read More

This is so moist! I followed the suggestion to add creamed corn instead of kernels - which was awesome. It did require another 20 minutes or so to cook through. I love this recipe.:-) Read More

Finally a cornbread that is moist and delicious! I left out the corn only because I have some picky eaters. This is a keeper without a doubt! Thanks for sharing your grandmother's recipe with us. Read More
