Delicious cornbread that won't clog your arteries. I've adopted this recipe as it didn't have a loving owner. I have made it myself and you can read my comments in my review! I have updated the cooking time and added optional ingredients.

This was pretty darn good, and I was happy it didn't require a lot of ingredients. I made it because my husband requested cornbread and I didn't have my usual mix, but I did have a bunch of cornmeal on hand (no idea how old it is, but it seemed to be okay). I didn't add the corn or the jalapenos - didn't want to freak out my husband, plus I was serving it with jambalaya which is spicy enough. I ended up adding about 3 tablespoons or so of skim milk because my batter was REALLY thick. I cut the sugar to 3 tsp. I baked mine in a loaf pan for about 40 minutes or so, and it turned out pretty darn good, although not as crumby as the cornbread I get from a package. Nonetheless, the husband was happy! Thanks for the recipe.

Best low fat cornbread yet! I also used less than 1/2 whole wheat flour, and 1/4 c unsweetened applesauce in place of part of the yogurt. You'd never know it was low fat.

Seriously good cornbread that is a bit chewy in a good way. Definitely keeping this for future. I found this recipe by circumstance -- didn't have any of the usual buttermilk so googled for a recipe that didn't require it. <br/><br/>I made mine with a high quality cornmeal and I used greek-style plain nonfat yogurt because that was what I had in my fridge. I used a bit of honey instead of 1/4 c sugar. (Did not have kernel corn or jalapeños but will try those in the future.)
