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

"As a born and raised Southerner, I have never tasted sweet cornbread that I didn't immediately throw in the trash. This one is no exception."

"sorry but I much prefer the recipe on the Albers corn meal box. This has way too much flour to corn meal ratio and way too much sugar. I do like the additional amounts of egg though."

"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."
