As usual Kitten's recipe so good, soft, fluffy texture and a hit with all my family and guests, I used honey instead of sugar and baked in a hot cast iron skillet. Couldn't ask for a better cornbread.

Yum! I added a generous handful of grated aged white cheddar and some (about 1 tsp) finely chopped pickled jalapeno peppers. Instead of baking one cake I made 12 muffins, so baking time was reduced to about 15 minutes. I still preheated the greased pan prior to filling, which helps the bread bake up nice & light. mmm, good! Thanks, Kittencal!

What a delicious recipe for cornbread! I used my own recipe for the cream corn (Recipe#143122) and used the white cornmeal. I baked it in my cast iron skillet. It rose very nicely. I did bake it a extra 5 minutes to make sure the middle was completely done. It had a great texture and went very well with Recipe#118821. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
