A friend gave me this recipe several years ago, and it's my favorite. I love to serve the melt-in-your mouth corn bread hot from the oven with butter and syrup. It gets rave reviews on holidays and at potluck dinners. —Nicole Callen, Auburn, California

"This is not cornbread. This is cake. It has over twice as much flour as it does cornmeal and way too much sugar to be cornbread."

"Easy to make, but too sweet for our taste. I'm going to try making it again using less sugar."
