I have made cornbread a couple times and it always came out dry and crumbled a lot. This recipe worked out great and was moist and full of flavor. Liked that it was not an overly sweet cornbread and enjoyed it with a bowl of corn chowder. My new favorite cornbread recipe! Made and reviewed for the Football Pool 2019 - Week 1.

Delicious! I had to make a half recipe as I did not have enough cornmeal. Made homemade creamed corn and it worked perfectly. The result was a lovely moist and full textured cornbread. Served it with split green pea soup for a wonderful dinner. Thanks for sharing Mike! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
