Reviews for Favorite Corn Bread
"Recipe is incredibly fast and easy to make. Bakes wonderful but my only critique is the bread is a tiny bit dry. Phyllis in Anaheim, Ca. ??"
"Like other reviewers, I also found this to be a good, basic corn bread recipe. It s quick to make, and easy to make only half a batch, which is important to me."
"This is the recipe on the box of corn meal that I use all the time. I just drizzle honey all over the top before baking. My family loves it with chili."
"I liked this recipe, it's a good basic cornbread, that everyone liked, nothing fancy, just quick good down to earth cooking. The way Taste of Home used to be. Thanks"
