I thought it was great. I loved the sweet taste to it. However I did make some of the changes suggested by other reviewers 1 1/2 cup flour instead of 2 cups and 1 1/4 cup cornmeal instead of the 3/4. You gotta taste this cornbread! Good job Trish... Read More

This recipe has real potential but is not perfect. The cooking time is completely off as many have pointed out. Using an 8 inch dish you have to cook 35 - 40 to get it done all the way through then the edges and bottom are - while still edible - burnt. I liked the sweet flavor but the texture was just not really a cornbread texture. I liked this well enough because I poured chilli over it but when I tried it bare it was too much like eating cake. This is indeed the cornbread for people who DON'T like cornbread. As many have pointed out it is similar to Marie Calendars in flavor but I usually use Marie Calendars mix for cornbread and the texture is COMPLETELY different. Note: Made it the second time with 1/2 cup less flour and 1/2 cup more cornmeal and the texture was MUCH better Read More

this recipe made 6 large muffins...and delicious by the way. I have searched for a cornbread recipe that is not too sweet, not too bland, and not too dry...I have found it. I cannot believe how good this recipe is. I did cook for add'l three minutes. we made this sunday with the chili recipe on this site..it's listed just as chili...but if you type in a few ingredients in your search, it's made with dark beer and coffe amongst other amazing ingredients...takes minutes to prepare, 2 1/2 hours to cook and we've been making it nonstop since last fall...a winner for sure teamed with this cornbread! thanks!!!

This is the best cornbread I have ever had!!! I did change the recipe a little bit to make it more of a cornmeal texture I put in 1-1/2 c. flour and 1-1/4 c. cornmeal I also added a little bit of honey because I like my cornbread on the sweeter side. But this recipe is definitely a keeper!! Thanks so much! Read More

After reading several of the reviews I decided to make this recipe with 1/2 cup less flour and 1/2 cup more corn meal to get a more cornbread texture as suggested by another review. It turned out VERY tasty. However the cooking time is off. Need to cook about 10 minutes longer than suggested. Read More

Great cakey cornbread! I put in an extra 2T. of cornmeal and the kids loved it. Was gobbled up in no time. --For those who are allergic to eggs/dairy the eggs butter & milk can easily be substituted. I used 1/4 c. water for the 2 eggs margarine in place of the butter & soya milk instead of milk.-- Happy munching!:o) Read More
