I had never made cornbread this way but it turned out great. Maybe a little dense but maybe that is how it is supposed to be? I'm not a fan of cornbread so I only had a few nibbles but my husband gave it a thumbs up. Thanks for sharing! Read More

These turned out really well. Same great Southern Cornbread taste that I m accustomed to but in a smaller portion for my wife and I instead of making my normal whole skillet Cornbread and having way too many leftovers when family is not around. Flavor was really good crisp outside and light inside. Read More

While these were quick to throw together, I had a few issues with the recipe. The recipe title is misleading as there is no hot water involved with the recipe. There is no way you can properly cook these in 3 tablespoons of oil, in my opinion. The recipe states to drop by spoonfuls, but doesn't indicate what size spoonfuls and with the recipe yield of 4, each serving would be much larger than a spoonful. After only cooking on one side for two minutes, they had burned. The consistency was way too dense for our liking, as well. Read More

Like many have said, this is not a true hot water cornbread recipe. You also cannot make this correctly with 3TB of olive oil. You need to fry these in a 1/2inch of oil. The batter should be runny and you pour by about 1/4 cup into the oil and fry 2-3 minutes per side. The recipe itself is okay, butter makes them better. * Recipe made with gluten free ingredients* Read More

This is an interesting recipe, beginning with the name including hot water when there’s no hot water in the recipe. That being said, we both enjoyed this! It got a little better with each bite. Cornbread is not a part of our typical meals, so we also don’t have a base for comparison. As another reviewer said, this is more hush puppy than cornbread. Regardless, it’s perfect with chili on a rainy dreary day. Super quick and easy, too. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

No, this is not hot water cornbread; it's drop cornbread, or corn dodgers made with a wet buttermilk mix like drop biscuits. Add some sugar and green onion and you will have hush puppies. ...but hot water corn bread - no. Read More

It didn't taste bad just more like a hush puppy. Nothing like good old fashion hot water cornbread but it was ok. Not anything I would probably cook again. Read More
