Just like you said - rich and moist! Wonderful cornbread! We LOVED it! Very easy to put together. I added in 1 cup plain flour instead of wholemeal and some chopped up pickled jalapenos. I never realised I had only 3/4 cup cheddar cheese till after I started mixing the ingredients together and so that's the only change I'd to make (instead of the full 1 1/2 cups). But turned out great anyway! I didn't find it necessary to cover for the last 10 mins cooking time and they were done within 50 mins. Thank you, Maeven6, for sharing your mum's wonderful recipe.. I definitely will be making this again! Made for PAC Spring '08.
