This is a delicious recipe I've served many times to my family. I don't always shape the bread into a heart, but it is fun to do that for Valentine's Day or another special occasion. Even if you don't have a heart-shaped pan, garnishing with ribbon adds a colorful touch. One of our favorite meals is this corn bread with bean soup and a salad.

"We didn't care for this. We thought it was too bland."

"Super moist! Good, but not sweet; notice there is no sugar in the recipe. Maybe southern cornbread is not sweet?"
