Like eating raw flour paste. Our traditional oven has been on the blink so I was searching for ways to compensate with the microwave. This was not the only microwave cornbread recipe I tried, but they all came out the same. Totally inedible! I can't believe anyone eats this stuff.

Not bad at all for a microwave recipe! I would just add a bit of salt, then I think they would be perfect. They taste pretty healthy without salt, but my 6 yr old had seconds, so I can't complain. Also, I made them with peach and strawberry yogurt because that is what I had on hand. It worked fine and made me think adding a handfull of dried fruit would probably be really yummy!

this tasted very good, however it didn't behave very well in my microwave... It might be because my microwave is very powerful, but the bread turned out harder and more dense then I am used to. But i love cornbread, so it didn't bother me too much!
