Exactly what I was looking for. I couldn't find my old recipe so I was looking for something similar and this was perfect. I did reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup because I prefer my cornbread less sweet and found they needed a bit more time in the oven. I guess my oven is a bit cooler than the original poster's oven. Other than that, I followed the recipe as written and they turned out great. Thanks!

Disappointed. I didn't like the taste. I either didn't like the buttermilk taste as much as I thought I would or I added too much salt. When I measured the salt I didn't level it off. Still next time I would only add 1/2 tsp salt. I also reduced the sugar to 1/3 cup instead of half cup which worked out well. Also I used Bobs Red Mill medium grind cornmeal. Next time see if finely ground corn meal is available, as the muffins tasted gritty. Muffins were overly crumbly.

Good basic recipe. Can whip these up in no time. Love that it's completely from scratch.

YUM! I was out of eggs so I substituted 1 tbsp of milled golden flax-seed +3 tbsps water for the egg, all I had was canned milk so I did 1/2 cup canned milk and 1/2 cup of water + 1 tbsp of white vinegar for the buttermilk and they still turned out great! Will save this one to my recipe box and I may even reduce the sugar and try for sweet cornbread with it. It was sweet, moist and non-crumbly. Held together great! Thanks for sharing!

The family loved this recipe! I didn't have buttermilk so I did a cup of milk and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar (and let it sit for 10 mins.

Here's my healthier version: I used oat flour instead of all purpose flour, to make them gluten free. I used 1/4 cup of Stevia in the Raw instead of sugar and added a mushy banana to the wet ingredients. I used 1/4 cup of coconut oil in place of butter. I will use only 1/2 tsp. salt next time. Tasted so yummy!

I have been trying a lot of corn muffin recipes this is the best ever, soooo moist! I added @ 1/4 cup of chopped jalapeños and 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese to batter.... The best !
