A great recipe that's quick and easy to make. I got it from a Merchant Mariner and have used it for years. Definitely a favorite and often asked for recipe.

Great. I did bake it in a hot,oiled cast iron skillet and it turned out beautiful.

I just made this and had to try some. DELICIOUS.
These are the modifications I made and it is seriously awesome.
- Halved the recipe - baked in a 8x8 pan
- Instead of oil used melted butter
- Used soymilk instead of regular milk (it's all I had)
- Added about 2/3 cup frozen corn

I will definitely make these again!

Excellent cornbread. The texture was just perfect. I used 5 fresh jalapenos instead of the pickled and that worked well for us. Only used half the sugar because we prefer a less sweet cornbread and baked it in my large iron skillet. Excellent. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Spring 2010 :)
