This has got to be the tastiest and the most moist cornbread I have ever made. It is the most requested thing I cook, so I am sharing it. Don't let the ingredients fool you. It's unbelievable.

We couldn't get enough of this cornbread. I just took it out of the oven 15 minutes ago and it is half gone! I cut down the butter to only 6 tablespoons and the sugar to 1/3 cup. I also added extra jalepenos and cheese and a dash of cayenne pepper. It turned out perfect - moist but not greasy and very flavorful. Read More

This is the first review that I have written and unfortunately it has to be a negative one. I should have read the other reviews. Of course this was moist, it was the greasiest thing I have ever made and by just touching the bread, it stuck to my hands. This recipe includes way too much fat to be necessary...the butter is overboard and fat free cheese is okay...I also added corn niblets. I made this for the Fourth of July but ended up having to make another batch from BETTER HOMES & GARDENS COOKBOOK (excellent moist and firm recipe by the way!) the morning of the BBQ. this was a huge, disappointment. Especially since this is my first problem with a recipe on this site. Read More

I followed this recipe to the "T" and it had WAY too much butter in it! it should of had at least half of what it called for. hubby said it was good but way too greasy and refused to eat the rest of that BIG pan so it got thrown away, so be careful about the butter it was way too greasy Read More

This bread was fantastic. I read all the other reviews and decided to cut the butter in half. Also, instead of 1 cup of sugar, I added only 3/4 cups and it came out wonderfully. I served it with other Mexican food and this was a hit to all of my guests. It was even better then next day after all the flavors melded. This one can be made ahead. I am keeping it and passing it on. I had several people ask me for the recipe. Read More

Oh my!!! Way too much butter.... A 1/2 cup of butter was sufficient and the bread was still moist. Added diced red peppers, 1/2 tsp onion powder and corn OFF the cob that had been grilled. To give the bread more complexity and a little more zip, use Pepperjack cheese in place of the Monterey Jack. Read More

My husband loved this cornbread. I didn't have any cornmeal so I just used 2 boxes of Jiffy corn bread mix. I made the cornbread up like on the box and added the cheeses and chiles. Turned out great! Thanks for the recipe. Read More
