      This turned out to be really good cornbread! Mine turned out looking just like Dreamer's photo. I sprayed a nonstick spray on the casserole dish and omitted the skillet step for lack of time and not wanting to dirty something else. It turned out perfect and didn't stick. My picky DD that doesn't care for cornbread said she liked this one. At 20 minutes it was already brown on top. Thanks!

      A very nice light cornbread. As with the previous reviewer, my bread did stick a little but I had no problem loosening it from the pan undamaged.

      This is the first time I ever used white cornmeal and I really liked it a lot. The change I made to this recipe was adding 2 tablespoons sugar but otherwise followed as directed. Next time I will use more oil as the bread stuck a bit to the pan when I was trying to get it out of the pan - but the bread was wonderful with stew. Thanks for sharing!
