"This recipe for sweet corn bread is a combination of many trials and errors," says Kristy Kent, Wind Gap, Pennsylvania. "I tried to duplicate an extraordinary corn bread I sampled in another town. Adding honey to a combination of recipes finally did the trick."
My husband says this recipe is close enough to the corn bread his mother used to make, so I consider it a winner. His criteria were to "put butter on the corn bread without it crumbling to pieces" and "to be able to break it up into a glass of milk without it turning to mush."
My husband doesn't like traditional Texas corn bread, so I came up with this recipe. This is the only kind he'll eat. Yogurt makes this variation different from most. —Amanda Andrews of Mansfield, Texas
This tasty corn bread is easy to mix up. I serve it often with a meal or hearty bowl of soup as an alternative to rolls. Cheddar cheese makes it specially flavorful, and the diced peppers add nice color.

My husband, Axtell, was a fan of the cornmeal muffins from a restaurant we visited. I found a similar recipe and cut it down to serve two. These muffins are his favorite.—Marie Kramer, Kirkwood, Missouri
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.

These traditional corn muffins are perfect alongside the creamy casserole, but they really complement any meal. Topped with a little butter, fresh-from-the-oven treats like these never last too long around our house.—Barb Marshall, Pickerington, Ohio
