Self-rising cornmeal is not readily available here in Australia, so used half cornmeal and half self-rising flour. Worked out well, nice and moist, melt in your mouth. Have made this again, didn't have any sour cream, so used buttermilk used just a little bit less. Was just as enjoyable.

The BEST cornbread I have ever had. Soft on the inside, a little crusty on the outside. The whole family gave this an enthusiastic 5-stars. The sour cream really makes a difference in the texture. Mine usually turns out dry and would choke a horse. Thanks NurseDi.

This cornbread is just delicious. Moist and soft!! I made this for our Labor Day celebration. My family and guests all thought it was the best. A 5-star delight in my book.
