Very tasty - just like mom used to make! Added a little more sugar, as Himself likes his cornbread sweeter than most, and did not have a cast iron skillet so just added the melted butter to the liquids and sprayed a casserole with Pam instead. Thanks for sharing

I added a cup of cheddar and one jalapano and the recipe still worked wonderfully. Loved this recipe!!! So easy to make and had so much flavour. Thank you so much for posting it.
