It's a pleasure to serve this moist corn bread to family and guests. Honey gives it a slightly sweet taste. Most people find it's difficult to eat just one piece. -Adeline Piscitelli, Sayreville, New Jersey

"This was the BEST cornbread recipe I have ever made! I didn't have heavy cream, so I used a stick of melted butter and 1/2 cup of milk. I also omitted the sugar and used stevia. It was very moist and delicious! I have tried many recipes, this is the best!"

"This cornbread didn't turn out as moist as I had hoped...although it was likely due to a combination of my using 3/4 skim milk and 1/4c half and half (in lieu of the whipping cream) and baking it too long (I used a non-stick metal baking pan and it was already slightly beyond golden at 20 minutes when I went to check on it). But it was still delicious...and with a nice pad of melted butter on top, it definitely regained its moisture. I will try it again in a glass baking dish and with the recommended cream!"

"I used stone ground corn meal so this was grainy (which I actually really like). The lightly crusted top added a good crunch to it all, and the honey wasn't overpowering. Everyone in my family LOVED it, including my extremely picky toddler (seriously, he only eats about 5 things, and he devoured this). Unfortunately, I let it cook just slightly too long so the outer edges are too dry, but that's my fault, not the recipe's. I will be making this again!"

"Excellent corn bread recipe! We usually only have Jiffy corn bread, but this one just may be our corn bread recipe from now on. Very moist and flavorful."
