Reviews for Little Texas Corn Bread
"I made this cornbread today and it was delicious. I followed the recipe but I did use extra sharp cheese for a nice cheesy flavor. I do not recommend the toothpick test as it tested done at 25 minutes and even though I was leery, I went ahead and took it out. It definitely needs to cook at least 30 or even 25 minutes. It should be starting to brown on top. Mine could have cooked a little longer but it was delicious.The very center was a little mushy. I will definitely make this again. I recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home."
"This is really good!! Moist, rich and delicious. The perfect accompaniment to soup or chili."
"My family really liked this corn bread. I served it with chili which was already spicy enough for me so I eliminated the green chilies in the corn bread and add 2 tablespoons of sugar. Yum."
"My first pot of chili called for a test of this cornbread today. I thought it was very good..spicy, just the way I like my chili too. I served it while it was still quite warm so it was rather soft yet and didn't hold it's shape, but now that it has cooled down it is fine."
