An excellent cornbread to serve with chili.

"I used white whole wheat flour and it came out very good. Very quick and easy to make, not overly sweet like some cornbread can be. The sweetness comes out well, especially when you pair it with a savory dish like a soup or chili. I'll...

Does it rise like normal cornbread????

For use in cornbread apple stuffing: I made this with a dry buttermilk blend and water, because the liquid buttermilk that's left over just goes to waste. The first batch was really compact, like it didn't rise. Then I went to the store to get liquid buttermilk to try again, and discovered that has double the amount of sodium of the dry buttermilk! (Dad's on a low sodium diet <140mg per serving, and loves stuffing). For batch two, I used Whole Wheat Pastry flour instead, got a little bit more height out of it, but the top came out two-toned color-wise. It was fine inside, and worked for the stuffing. Next time I'll think about using White-Whole Wheat flour instead. And maybe liquid buttermilk.

Easy to make

This was my first attempt ever at cornbread. I was nervous on making it too sweet as some previous reviews had sounded, so added a little less than the required sugar, along with a little honey. However, I think it could have been a little sweeter. The texture and moisture were great, although I think I would appreciate a little more sweetness...maybe even a honey butter.

Moist & Delicious

I made this for a cornbread stuffing recipe and had to stop myself from eating it before it got into the stuffing. I used whole grain medium grid cornmeal with white whole wheat flour.

Easy to make, delicious.
Added fresh corn and it worked out just great!

I used this for my Thanksgiving stuffing and for muffins very successfully. Blogged about both and will definitely make it again.


I cut down the sugar even though it is only 3 tbls just because I don't like a sweet cornbread. I even doubled the salt and this bread just has no flavor.
I would try another recipe, don't use this one.
