This recipe was ok. I expected it to be moist, but it is more crumbly and dry, and it fell apart as I was serving it. Maybe I should have expected that since it is made w/ only cornmeal. My family ate it up though, surprisingly -- probably because I topped it with lots of melted butter! My husband spread honey on it and had seconds & thirds. It was good crumbled into the chili. Just don't expect a moist, fluffy cornbread.

We really enjoy cornbread, and this was delicious! I used this to make cornbread stuffing for another recipe, very moist and flavorful. Thanks Linda, I will use this recipe again! Made for 1.2.3 Hits.
