    perfectly done in cast iron pans. A touch too sweet, reduced sugar second batch. Many compliments from family and friends. This is a keeper!

    Amazing! I add extra honey and sprinkle brown sugar on top for some added sweetness and it is so moist and sweet.

    I substituted in whole wheat flour and cashew milk and baked it in silicone muffin cups so I was very pleasantly surprised when they turned out! It took 25 minutes per batch. It was moist and a little denser then your average cake but I found the texture and flavour quite enjoyable. They popped out of the muffin cups like they never wanted to be there in the first place.

    I found the cornbread to be to crumbly for my liking.

    LOVED this recipe. Will definitely make it again. Only thing I found is that the portion was too large for a family of 3. Halved all the ingredients and it was perfect!

    Very good. Would make it again. Next time I’d increase cornmeal though (and decrease flour).

    Ok but too much flour, not really a corn bread IMHO. I like recipes with sour cream or yogurt in them to keep it moist but I thought I’d try something different.

    It was pretty good but next time I would use less flour and more cornmeal. It was cakey.

    Have made this several times I use half batter in a 9” round pan and the other half into 6 large muffins (12 reg sized muffins)

    The most moist cornbread I’ve had. A pinch more salt would bring it up to 5 stars.

    I followed the instructions word for word but it wouldn’t cook in set amount of time. When finally finished- tasted like it was missing something and had an unusual buttery after taste. Barely tasted sweet. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t the best corn bread recipe I’ve made.

    Excellent cornbread recipe. This will be my go to from now on. Very moist, can be as sweet as you like. I decreased the sugar by 1/3. Came out perfect

    Absolutely delicious! I've tried a number of cornbread recipes and this is def the best I've made. It came out thick, super moist, and just the right amount of sweet! I usually use an 8x8 pan so this is def more than I'd usually make, but it was so good I'm sure none will go to waste.
