    It was great. I think mixing the ingredients in 3 different bowls made a big difference. It’s the only cornbread recipe you’ll ever need

    it was light, fluffy and simply delicious!!! I made 2 batches and combined them for my skillet. The recipe makes a small amount for a regular sized skillet. Amazing recipe though .Loved it!!!

    It turned out perfect. Put just under 1/3 cup of sugar. Accompanied the cornbread with chilli and a salad with guacamole.

    The best cornbread I’ve ever baked. I preheated oven and placed cast iron skillet in oven with vegetable oil while I prepared the batter. Skillet was very hot when I poured batter into skillet. The edges were very crispy and delicious. This is my all to,e favorite cornbread recipe.
