What a wonderful recipe for cornbread! This is so special and yummy, mmm! The texture is very fluffy and grainy, just like a good cornbread should be. Its crusty on the outside and has a lovely sweet oniony taste. YUM!
I used home made applesauce in place of the shortening, left out the sugar and reduced the salt to 1/4 ts. It came out fantastic and Ill definitely make this again. I especially loved the upside down idea! :)

I love cornbread and this makes it extra yummy with the onions. I used vidalia onions - but only two. I also used canola oil instead of shortening & egg substitute (I always do) - it was delicious!
I prepared this as a side to soup on a chilly night. It was a very hearty cornbread and would be good as a side with many meals. The sweetness of the onions really comes out with the sauteing. I did add a bit more sugar to the cornbread mixture, as we like a sweeter cornbread.
wowser this was awesome i used only 2 onions .it smells divine everyone that likes cornbread should try this
This was just ok for me. Even my husband who LOVESSSSSSS cornbread wasn't too thrilled. Maybe next time I'd incorporate the onions "in" the batter. Thanks!
I tried making this, and followed the directions exactly...except I mixed up the cooking time. I was thinking it was 15 minutes...added another 5 because they didn't look done. I checked them with a cake tester in the middle and it came out clean, so I thougth I was all set. I flipped it over to serve like directed, and discovered at that point that it was undercooked...all still batter. It was my mistake, so I'm not assigning stars. I think this looked great...just make sure you cook it long enough. Oh...I did use 4 sweet onions instead of 6 walla walla onions.
