This was my first time making cornbread from scratch. I was looking for a recipe with cheese and came across this one. I had all ingredients but the buttermilk. I just made my substitute with milk and vinegar. At first I thought the batter was too runny, but having worked with cornmeal in making polenta, I realized the cornmeal would soak up the liquid and firm up. I baked it in a glass dish for 32mins, and it came out perfect! So moist and delcious! I never knew how easy it could be! I've always heard how the bread could come out dry, so i never attempted it. .not in his case! Thanks for posting this recipe

Very good recipe. It could use a bit of oil though. Seems like that is not enough butter to be moist enough. It was very cheesey and we added half a small onion too. I am definitely saving this recipe. Goes GREAT with chili!
