Great recipe. They were delicious with a bowl of chili. I might cut the amount of sugar a bit nest time, but that is a personal taste. I got 24 instead of 30, but my madeleine pan is bigger than most, I think. Well be making these again and will try the yellow cornmeal too.

This is an excellent corn bread recipe. The hint of sweetness is a welcome change from the 'too sweet' varieties. A nice, light texture with excellent taste. Now for the changes I made --- I couldn't find the blue cornmeal so I used yellow as ellie_ indicated could be used. I do not have a madeline mold and didn't want to buy one just to try this recipe. I ended up making muffins and they were great! So the versatility of the recipes makes it even more appealing. The baking time was about the same as indicated in the recipe. I think I'm done buying corn bread mixes .. this is too easy and too good not to use all the time.
