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

"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!"

"Very tasty! I made this to accompany a large batch of chili for casual gathering. They gobbled it up and asked for the recipe. I served it with honey on the side...yum! I think it was enjoyed so much because it is a bit different than the typical corn bread. I did decrease the sugar to 2/3 cup as suggested by others, but that was the only recipe change."
