"My husband loves sweet cornbread. He really liked this recipe. I don't like sweet cornbread very much, but this was tasty. I just ate a small piece will butter."

"This cornbread is fabulous! I was having 14 dinner guests and needed a good corn bread recipe. I doubled this recipe, and baked it in a 11x15 inch pan at 325 degrees for 40 minutes. It turned out wonderfully! The best corn bread I've tasted in a long, long time. Served with honey and butter, it complimented a vegetarian chili."

"This would have been 5 stars, but it crumbled super easy and was hard to eat with our hands. The taste is absolutely fabulous though!"

"Very sweet and flavorful corn bread. Turned out a bit crumbly but we didn't mind. I used my 12 in. cast iron skillet instead of a 13 x 9 pan."
