Very Flavorful!

This is a very flavorful cornbread. I cut down on the jalapeno a little because I thought that it might be too spicy. However, I think I am going to make it with the full recipe. It is a simple, delicious dish that goes well with just about anything!

Lovely cornbread

I made some little adjustments like extra milk and oil instead of water,a cream style corn instead of the whole ones, garlic salt instead of regular and no sugar. This cornbread was the best I've ever tasted. It's now officially on the "FEEL GOOD" food list.We are definitely hooked.

Great cornbread recipe.

This was a delicious cornbread. It was very moist, my family loved it. I omitted the sugar, as we do not like sweet cornbread.
