This is an easy to prepare, mildly-flavored cornbread. I tried this at a friend's house years ago, and promptly asked for the recipe. This has been extremely helpful over the years, as we have picky eaters around here who won't touch cornbread that has actual corn in it, but they gobble this one up! We really like it warm with a bit of butter and honey, or alongside some chili, etc.

This was good, I do prefer more of a corn taste to my cornbread. I can see why people who don't like cornbread like this. It is very mild and the texture not grainy at all. Super quick to prepare for sure!

Great recipe. Made one batch with egg whites and low fat sour cream in place of the oil and one batch vegan by using soy milk and egg replacer. Both turned out awesome! My new go to recipe for corn bread.

I can really understand all the wonderful reviews. I made these gluten free by using a gluten-free all purpose flour blend. The end product was delicious. I used a 9-inch cast iron skillet and would probably recommend staying with an 8-inch pan. Made for PAC Spring 2011.
