"A moist cornbread made with molasses. It doesn't use any butter, because it really doesn't need it. I came up with this one night when I was trying to make a cornbread sweetened with molasses. When I was cooking it, I realized that I'd forgotten to put butter in it. I ended up cooking it anyway, and it didn't need any."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

After reading the other reviews, I wasn't sure I wanted to make this. Since someone mentioned that the molasses made this taste nasty, I decided to substitute it with corn syrup. Good call! I ended up adding about 3 tablespoons of that, and then 3-4 tablespoons regular sugar. This was the best cornbread I've ever had. =) Even my sister, who formerly hated cornbread, enjoyed it. Yum!
This bread tasted horrible! The molasses gave it an awful taste and it was very bitter. I will definately NEVER make this recipe again.
Tastes great... Super easy.
RE: the other reviewers who say this is missing something, or who don't like the
"whang" of molasses--add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. When you cook with molasses you always need a bit of baking soda to bring out the flavor and tame the "edge".
Good recipe if you like "Yankee" cornbead.
Having read prior reviews, I used maple syrup instead of molasses, and I also added corn to the batter. This was not the best cornbread I've ever had, but it was good for a low-fat recipe. I'll probably make it again because it's healthier.
I added about 1/4 cup of honey and 1/2 tsp of baking soda. It was great!!
Probably won't be making this one again, it I do it'll be greatly modified. I liked the different flavor from the molasses but it was missing something else in taste. I didn't like the texture at all it was very spongy and nothing like I expect cornbread to be.
I'm sorry, but this was just plain tooooo bitter! And I even added a little sugar to the batter.
On the bright side I liked the texture. Maybe making it without the molasses wouldn't be too bad.
