Went straight in the garbage. It's the second time I've tried to use flax in cornbread and will never make that mistake again. The other reader was being very kind to say it was too dense lol. Anyway I made recipe exactly as written and I thought it was awful .

Yum! I admit I didn't follow this exactly since I only had a box of corn muffin mix rather than corn meal. I added just under a cup of flour to it and had to bake it 10 more minutes, but it turned out beautifully! I am done with gritty dry cornbread. I love the actual niblets of corn inside.

Too dense and heavy for my taste. I have much better corn bread recipes.

It says 9 servings; I'd say at least 12. This was okay but I doubt I will make it again; we will stick with regular cornbread, no corn or cheese.

Nothing extremely special about this recipe. I wasn't took crazy about the results but the family liked it. Moist...that's definately a plus!

Unexpectedly yummy! I don't usually use cheese or corn in corn bread. The kids LOVED it! Love using flaxseed, too. Very easy. Make with the Quinoa Turkey Chili - a great cool night dinner for sure!
