    Made two batches of cornbread yesterday. One was not this recipe and turned out okay, but ran across this one and decided to try it. WOW! Turned out PERFECT and DELICIOUS!!! I doubled the recipe and made it with 4 cups of cornmeal. Threw away all my other recipes for cornbread. This one is IT from now on.

    Easy and delicious! It's inspired a chili craving :) I made this with yellow corn meal, and instead of baking in a skillet for 25 minutes, I baked it in a paper-lined muffin tin for 15 minutes. Got 12 perfect cornmuffins (word to the wise: cornmuffins are very crumbly when you're removing the paper liners. Maybe next time I'll use a greased tin instead). I myself prefer sweetened cornbread and had never tasted anything else, but for something with no sweet to it, this is great!

    Awesome cornbread, and super easy. I soured skim milk for the buttermilk. I was worried that the batter was way too thin, but it worked perfectly.

    Great crust, just what I was looking for, thanks!
