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

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

"I've been making this recipe for well over 15 years. We love it! It's on the sweet side. I've tried decreasing the sugar for my husband, but I think he just prefers my skillet cornbread like his mom makes. I've tried other recipes, but I always return to this one for the rest of my family. Yum!"
