I guess I need help with this one, as the butter and sugar, by using a hand held beater, never got light and fluffy. Seemed to get heavier. It was good right out of the oven, but I found it to be very dry, crumbly and without extra butter and/or honey, I didn’t think it was anything special. I won’t make it again, unless someone can show we what I did wrong.

Recipe is incredibly fast and easy to make. Bakes wonderful but my only critique is the bread is a tiny bit dry. Phyllis in Anaheim, Ca. ??

Like other reviewers, I also found this to be a good, basic corn bread recipe. It s quick to make, and easy to make only half a batch, which is important to me.

This is the recipe on the box of corn meal that I use all the time. I just drizzle honey all over the top before baking. My family loves it with Chili.

I liked this recipe, it's a good basic cornbread, that everyone liked, nothing fancy, just quick good down to earth cooking. The way Taste of Home used to be. Thanks
