Reviews for Buttery Corn Bread
Sort By :
"I used half the sugar so it wasn't overly sweet for me, but it's corn meal / white flour ratio is off I think. It tasted more like a yellow cake than corn bread to me. Not great as a corn bread."
"This is not cornbread, it's cake with corn meal. I can't give it a rating as cornbread and as far as it being a good cake, well I didn't care for that either so I will have to rate it one star for cake and no stars for cornbread."
"Pretty good. I followed recommendations to use melted butter, cut the sugar, & used buttermilk. I also made it 50/50, flour to cornmeal & soaked the cornmeal to eliminate any gritty taste. One thing I usually do to up the flavor is to add pureed corn, but I didn't have time. Next time!"
"Way to much sugar for me. This is more like cake. Just needs strawberries and whipped cream."
"This isn't cornbread. It's corn meal cake."
