This is excellent cornbread! I use 1/3 c. white and 1/3 c. brown sugar, and I let the cornmeal soak in the milk for 10-15 minutes before mixing with the other ingredients. I've also replaced the vegetable oil with melted butter, which works very well.

The only bad thing I'd say about this is that it crumbled to easily, and it was really messy.

This works as cornbread muffins, too! I am not a huge fan of making cornbread as a round or square cake shape… they just are too messy that way. Instead I like to pour the batter into muffin tins lined with cupcake/muffin papers. This recipe works great as muffins. I pour the batter almost to the very top of the paper liners then I bake this at 375 degrees, but I have a convection oven so the heat is usually 25 degrees less than the normal temperature… so you can cook it at the suggested heat of 400 degrees with a normal oven. It takes 20-23 minutes for a toothpick to come out clean. The tops are always nicely browned and the muffins are perfectly cooked. The only other minor change I make is I use a medium grind cornmeal that is a little more course. It makes the cornbread more like a true “comfort food”. If you don’t like that extra crunch then use a finer grind. EVERYONE loves this- it is always on request from my guests and family, “Can you make your special cornbread?” It only takes about 5 minutes if you use a stand mixer. Very easy and very yummy! People will love that you made this from scratch. Oh yeah, and for you calorie nuts: I have calculated that if you make 12 muffins out of this batter, it runs about 180 calories per muffin or 2160 for the whole batch.

Well, needles to say, you'd sure be hard pressed to come up with a better cornbread recipe. It's excellent! Suberb! I've read all 84 + reviews and have learned the following additional options: I can bake it in a muffin pan (bake only 15 minutes); I can cut back on my sugar to maybe a round 1/2-cup (or less). I can add just a smidgen more salt. I can add a 1/2 t. vanilla. Add I can also add just a little bit more oil (so it's not quite so crumbly). The next time I bake this for our gang, I'm going to add all of the above -- I'll be bold and daring!

This is THE best cornbread recipe. Look no further!! I did cut down on the sugar a little. (It's still sweet) Delicious with butter and honey on it. Fantastic accompaniment to soup or stew or beans or even makes a great breakfast! *****This recipe gets a 5 Star rating from MontanaRecipes*****

This is the best cornbread ever!!! It's so easy to make too. I did use 1/3 Cup powdered milk and 1 Cup water for the milk to save money. I also used canola oil instead of the vegetable oil. I didn't like cornbread very much until I found this recipe.

Awesome cornbread! I used melted butter instead of oil and lowfat buttermilk vs. milk. It was light, fluffy and went great with ribs and the left overs were great for breakfast.
