I made this bread for a family dinner and they absolutely loved it. My husband said this is a keeper. I didn't have enough half & half as the
recipe called for; used 1/2 cup of half & half (fat free) and and 3/4 cup of skim milk.. It took longer to bake then recipe called for. You will not be disappointed with this recipe. I tried other recipes in the past and they were not as moist as this one.

Wow, its like eating cake for dinner. We really like the sweet cornbreads and this one is wonderful. DD couldn't get enough. We served this with a 15 bean soup. Thank you for sharing.

I am not really a fan of cornbread, but I have to say that this recipe has converted me! I did make a change to make this gluten and dairy free: I subbed Gluten Free Café All Purpose baking mix for the regular flour, gluten free masa harina for the cornmeal (because I don't care for the grittiness of regular cornmeal), and Earth Balance in place of the butter. Just fabulous! Thanks for the great recipe!

Excellent recipe, followed as written. The taste is quite sweet and it held together nicely. Like some of the others I used a cast iron pan heated and butter in the bottom. The results were very good. Cooking time was 23mins. Next time I make, I will cut back on the salt and not use salted butter in the pan! I will also reduce the sugar content, just more of a personal preference. This is a keeper.

Best cornbread ever! Not gritty or dry. It is perfection. I substituted milk/cream for Almond Breeze Almond Milk and butter for Earth Balance baking sticks, to make this recipe DAIRY FREE. Next time, I am also going to sub out the flour and make it gluten free. Compliments all around last night as I took this to a party where Gumbo was the main dish. I did not add in the cayenne pepper. We ate the gumbo over the cornbread and it was absolutely amazing. Then, I had another piece of cornbread for dessert. :)

This is hands down the best cornbread I've ever made. Made it as written and my husband agreed . . . best yet. For two people, I will cut recipe in half and still have enough for leftovers. My 8

Made this in the bread machine (used the Cake setting) and it turned out incredible. So happy to have a moist, sweet cornbread recipe that I can throw together in the bread machine!

This was the best cornbread. I made it exactly as suggested. I choose to use 1/2 & 1/2 and no pepper. Like some of the other reviewers it took longer to bake than called for in the recipe, but that wasn't a problem. This will be the only recipe I will use for cornbread.
