Unfortunately this easy recipe was unpleasant. I grew up eating a denser cornbread and thought this recipe might be fun to try. I added 1/4 cup of water to thin out batter and even this added step didn't help the end result. Tasted terrible. Sorry. Read More

3.10.17 Easy definitely. Confused yes. Confused because there s neither baking powder nor baking soda in this recipe so how does the cornbread rise??? Considering no leavening ingredient I just assumed that there was a typo and this should have been self-rising cornmeal so that s what I used. This was a total disappointment because unfortunately what I ended up with was dense heavy and dry. I ate one piece and threw the rest away something I rarely do. Jillian Horton I know this is your grandmother s recipe and I m sorry for the bad review but in all honesty I simply cannot rate this recipe highly. There s not much room for cook s error here and this was just a failure for me. Read More
