The Best Moist Sweet Cornbread

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This is more like a cake it's so moist and light, you may want to add in some green chilies or shredded cheddar cheese --- for a less sweeter taste reduce sugar to 1/2 cup --- this is very good!

Top Review by Cooking away

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.
