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

This is not, Southern Style Hot Water Corn Bread! Southern Style Hot Water Corn Bread is simple and uses Hot Water to twice cook the meal! 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

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
