Our family loved the taste of this conrbread (which I added blueberries and made into muffins). AND it was just as easy as the 39 cent blue box. Thanks so much- this will be my standby cornbread recipe!

This is AWESOME! I never really tasted this 'american cornbread'. Now I did, and I absolutely love it! This was by far the the easiest baking recipe I ever used. And it was finished so quickly! I used a sillicone heart shape and it baked in about 15 minutes. I told my mom I was going to bake cornbread. When I was finished I brought some of the bread to her and she was like 'You are ALLREADY finished?!'. I loooove it. Tasted really good with cream cheese. I def see this as something to eat with dinner.

I was very pleased with this recipe. I made it once just like it reads and it was great. Next time to fit my dietary needs I used white whole wheat flour, 3T oil, splenda and added 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce and it was still awesome. Way better than the blue box
