Reviews for Buttery Corn Bread
"Definite make again. I made only half the batter since there were only 3 of us eating it. I made 6 large muffins and baked about 18 minutes. They were so tender and slightly sweet. Yum"
"A good recipe, bakes up light and fluffy, but the next time I make it, I will decrease the sugar by half. Sweet: so depending on how you use it or what you pair it with may determine how sweet you like it."
"Very good, moist , not overly sweet, light, made 1/2 recipe and put into muffin / cupcake paper cups only baked for 19 min. I will be making this again. I will not be using the recipe on the cornmeal package ever again."
"This would not be called Cornbread to some in the east US, add Ice cream that would taste good. Do I smell cake?"
"Great cornbread. Moist, buttery, sweet. Some Southerners think they own the making of good cornbread but they don't. There's nothing wrong with sweet cornbread. I've had cornbread with no sugar, baked in a skillet with bacon fat and it's nothing to brag about. This recipe is now my go to recipe when I'm making cornbread. Two thumbs up! Add some jam and I'll fight ya for it."
"As a new bride I made corn bread & then asked myself, "Why?" It was dry & tasteless, so over the years I tried others & didn't change my mind. When I saw this in TOH in 2002 & tried it, it was just what I was looking for so have used it for years! My children & grandchildren love it, as well as others when I take it to potlucks. I don't change anything."
"This is sooo good! It's perfectly light and fluffy. It's the best cornbread I've made! It's really not a "cake" as some said as cakes have Equal parts sugar and flour, ie 2 c sugar to 2 c flour. Comforting on a Cold drizzling winter day."
"Made this as 18 muffins, will put some in the freezer to see how they do!"
"This is the best corn bread ever!! its easy to prepare & to serve."
