    I've tried many different cornbread muffin recipes in over 40 years of baking, but these are my favorite. Not only are they very easy to make, but they always turn out perfectly. The texture is excellent, they rise beautifully, and the taste is just the way I like it. They are slightly sweet, moist, not crumbly. Even my husband enjoys them and he is not a big fan of cornbread. A big THANK YOU to Dorothy Smith for this recipe!

    Nothing special about these corn muffiins, but we enjoyed them. My grandson wanted corn in them, so I will stick with my own recipe.

    These are pretty good. I substituted Greek yogurt for the sour cream, turned out yummy! Thanks for the recipe!

    These are the only corn muffins I will make. I am always getting compliments on them. I will usually make a double batch because they disappear before my chili is gone.

    Very easy to make. Very moist & not crumbly like most cornbread. I don't make cornbread often, but when I do, this will be the recipe I use from now on.

    These were delicious! I've tried several different corn bread recipes, and this was the first my husband liked. We ate all 8 muffins at one meal. We'll have to exercise more restraint next time!
