"This is wonderful! We love the sweetness and how moist it is. I never have heavy whipping cream around so I just use the butter and milk substitute-- 1/3 melted butter mixed with 3/4 cup whole milk-- and it's worked well. The bread is very moist and freezes well."

"This was the BEST cornbread recipe I have ever made! I didn't have heavy cream, so I used a stick of melted butter and 1/2 cup of milk. I also omitted the sugar and used stevia. It was very moist and delicious! I have tried many recipes, this is the best!"

"This cornbread didn't turn out as moist as I had hoped...although it was likely due to a combination of my using 3/4 skim milk and 1/4c half and half (in lieu of the whipping cream) and baking it too long (I used a non-stick metal baking pan and it was already slightly beyond golden at 20 minutes when I went to check on it). But it was still delicious...and with a nice pad of melted butter on top, it definitely regained its moisture. I will try it again in a glass baking dish and with the recommended cream!"

"I used stone ground corn meal so this was grainy (which I actually really like). The lightly crusted top added a good crunch to it all, and the honey wasn't overpowering. Everyone in my family LOVED it, including my extremely picky toddler (seriously, he only eats about 5 things, and he devoured this). Unfortunately, I let it cook just slightly too long so the outer edges are too dry, but that's my fault, not the recipe's. I will be making this again!"

"Excellent and moist. Because I have lactose-intolerant people here, Instead of the heavy cream, I used 1T sour cream, 1T Ranch dressing, 1/4 c Miracle Whip, 1/4 cup non-dairy sweetener, and 1/4 cup water, and increased the honey to 1/3 cup. It was moist, sweet and vanished almost immediately with calls for more."

"This is the best cornbread ever!! Most are so dry they are inedible, but not this one. My whole family loves it! I also will substitute milk for the cream when I don't have it on hand and have always had excellent results. I usually use 3/4 of a cup because milk is thinner than the cream. I have also made these as muffins and they turned out great."

"This is the perfect cornbread. As a single person, most recipes made too much so I had been using a packaged mix that had honey in it and was the right size for one person. I will never go back to the mix as this recipe has the honey sweetness and is very easy to cut in half for one person but still can be used as a whole for company. When my children and grandchildren visit, they always request this cornbread. Thanks for wonderful recipe."

"This recipe sure met my needs for some great cornbread to go with a chili dinner!

I modified the recipe just a bit; I used milk instead of cream. The result was awesome!
The cornbread was not crumbly, it was delightfully spongey. It had a nice delicate taste.
I would say it is the best cornbread I have made from scratch so far. I will definately be making this again and won't hesitate to share it at gatherings or potlucks.
