Reviews for Peppered Corn Bread
"There is too much vegetable oil in this recipe. Is this a misprint? Otherwise,very good recipe.Please advise as to correct amount of oil to use."
"I served this along with my favorite chili recipe when we had "Mexican Night" at our home. It was a great hit. One of my guests who enjoys corn bread says it was the best he's ever tasted."
