This is a simple recipe with delicious results. I added 1/2 cup liquid honey, next time I'll add just 1/4 cup as it was a little too sweet. It held well together and was great with baked beans. This is a keeper!

It had a real funny taste to it, will not make it again.

Excellent cornbread! I added 1 Tbsp. of oil and 2 Tbsp. of honey, which still kept it lowfat and made it taste even better.

The texture is not crumbly and cake-like but is firmer and denser. It has an excellent flavor and is perfectly moist. It's especially good with fat-free margarine and/or honey. I will make this again. My family likes this better than the higher fat versions.

This tastes the best warm from the oven. I love the light texture and good corn flavor. Using yogurt with fruit inside gives it added interest and sweetness. Thanks for the fun recipe!

Excellent cornbread! My whole family loved it. It was even better than my old recipe that used 1/2 c. oil. Thanks for a great low-fat recipe Maria!

These were very good for being healthy. It is little drier than I would like but you can't have everything, right?
