Absolutely the best recipe for cornbread that I have tried. I find it hilarious that people say they love the recipes, then tell how they changed it. This moist cornbread recipe can't be improved on...period!

I made this cornbread without the sugar. It was very good, I don't understand why everyone must add so much sugar to all of theses recipes. I don't like sweet anything, my opinion; sugar it detracts from the great flavors of other ingredients.

This is, hands down, the best cornbread recipe I have ever had! Very moist and flavorful. I substituted 2 cups of plain, fat free yogurt for the 2 cups of sour cream. It was still fantastic without the added fat.

I am not a big fan of sweet cornbread but my family is. So I compromised and halved the sugar. We all loved it. One of the best homemade corn breads I have ever made.

Just made this, but with a few substitutions to make it less sweet, more savory, and healthier. I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream (as I do in most baked recipes calling for sour cream), 1/2 the butter, no sugar, and a few Tbs honey. Oh, and I added chopped onions and frozen corn. It was very good!

I added a chopped jalpeno pepper, and 1/4 cup each of grated cheddar and diced crisp bacon pieces. The sweet and savory was great.

My search for Perfect Homemade Cornbread has come to a screeching halt!!
