"This is a recipe from my hometown of Sarajevo, and it is similar to a southern cornbread. What makes it unique is the addition of semolina flour (or Cream of Wheat®). If you don't have semolina flour, you can just replace it with additional corn meal. This recipes also makes excellent muffins." — Taya

This is not what you're looking for if you want sweet, cake-like cornbread. However, it's got a delicious butter-milky flavor and tastes amazing with jam. I like it because I sometimes find sweet cornbreads a little overwhelming, especially with honey and like toppings, and this is a more neutral side. If you're tired sweet cornbread or just want something different for a change, try this one.
This was not to my taste. It was very bland and didn't really taste like corn at all. My very un-picky husband didn't like it either.I read the first review and was really looking forward to eating this with dinner tonight.
This is great cornbread, but please keep in mind....very different from the cake-like, sweet American cornbread. Also, in the Balkans, cornbread is eaten with feta cheese usually; it's even included in the batter sometimes, but that is a bit of a different recipe. Also, sour cream and feta is very nice with this as would be any strong flavored cheese. Try it that way and you will enjoy it more if you feel it is bland.
Made this three times. This is the best recipe for a cornbread without the sugar and honey. Semolina is essential especially if using a coarser corn meal or polenta that I put briefly through food processor. Full fat buttermilk is great as well as plain full fat yogurt. I used a 12" cast iron skillet and doubled the recipe-came out great as did the standard recipe . This cornbread is as good as it gets.
This is a very different corn bread as other reviewers mentioned. It has a tender and slightly spongy/eggy texture and a distinct buttermilk flavor. There was really nothing wrong with this. I just think it is a regional or acquired taste. Thanks for sharing.
I really liked the texture. Not crumbly, not cakey, not really bready either. Easy for someone with bad teeth to chew.
Next time I will add a little more salt (I'm usually a low-salt person, but...), and may try it with some frozen corn kernels. It could use a little more corn flavor, but I like it.
This is very bland cornbread. But with a lil grape jam it is awesome. Not to sweet!
