Reviews for Moist Red Pepper Corn Bread
"Yum! I admit I didn't follow this exactly since I only had a box of corn muffin mix rather than corn meal. I added just under a cup of flour to it and had to bake it 10 more minutes, but it turned out beautifully! I am done with gritty dry cornbread. I love the actual niblets of corn inside."
"Too dense and heavy for my taste. I have much better corn bread recipes."
"It says 9 servings; I'd say at least 12. This was okay but I doubt I will make it again; we will stick with regular cornbread, no corn or cheese."
"My husband loved this along with the quinoa turkey chili"
"Nothing extremely special about this recipe. I wasn't took crazy about the results but the family liked it. Moist...that's definately a plus!"
"Unexpectedly yummy! I don't usually use cheese or corn in corn bread. The kids LOVED it! Love using flaxseed, too. Very easy. Make with the Quinoa Turkey Chili - a great cool night dinner for sure!"
