Wow Tim----Instead of raving, maybe the following scenario will tell you how I feel, regarding your cornbread recipe. Last week I'd made a tried and true version, and popped the leftovers into my freezer. Yesterday I tried your version, and proceeded to throw out what I had stored in my freezer from the prior week! Yes, your version was that good! My only tweakings were that I baked it in an 8 x 8 pan, and I added 1/2 tsp salt to the recipe. Baked it for 25 minutes, and your recipe was the hit of my dinner! The combination of cream with the oil yielded flavor and moistness. I don't think I need to try any other cornbread recipe. This one will be made into muffins, cornbread, cornsticks, etc. many many times. Best wishes, Jeff

Really great flavor, but my family thought it was too crumbly.

Nice fluffy cornbread, not too crumbly, not too stiff. I subbed 3/4 C milk and 1/3 C melted butter for the cream, as I didn't have any. Turned out well with just the right hint of honey, not too overpowering. Thanks

This IS the BEST cornbread on the site. I will look no further! I followed the recipe to the t, made no changes and it is perfect ('cept I had to cook it longer, but that's nothing). Everyone said this is the best cornbread I've made from scratch yet (and I've made over 5 already from this site with 5 stars and 200+ ratings). Thank you Tim! P.S. I don't get reviews that only give 4 stars when they themselves say it's, "the best". Beats me.

Delicious! The honey in the cornbread adds a wonderful flavor! This is probably the best cornbread I've ever had!!

This is a great recipe. I tasted the baking powder so I'll scale it down to 2-1/2 tsp next time I cook it. I used 2 percent milk instead of the cream. Also, I felt it needed a little salt, so I'll start our with 1/2 teaspoon next time. All in all, I think the basic recipe lays the foundation for a great Cornbread.

Well, apparently this cornbread recipe can make cornbread lovers out of cornbread haters (Hubs). Have to believe it's partly because this one is sweet, which he mentioned right away that he noticed and liked. I added a minced jalapeno pepper and a cup of shredded pepper jack cheese, both of which were perfect fits for the sweeter cornbread. Nice balance of cornmeal and flour so that while these had a bold, cornmeal flavor, they were still light, fluffy and moist. I also think this definitely needed the 1/2 tsp. salt I added to make the flavor come alive - it was glaringly missing from the recipe. This made 12, plump and nicely rounded muffins, perfectly golden and a little crispy on the outside, moist and tender on the inside - 400 degrees, about 19-20 minutes.

This was the best ever. I had been looking for a sweet corn bread recipe and this was it. After the first bite I looked at my husband and told him that we had found the recipe we will always use.
