Very good and moist. It didn’t need anything added to it, but I couldn’t resist adding a little honey. It’s ok, because I decreased the amount of sugar to 1/3 cup so it wouldn’t be crazy sweet. I baked for 25 minutes at a slightly lower temp, and it was almost too long. One more minute and it wouldn’t have been such a good cornbread. This recipe is extremely popular (almost 2,000 reviews!)
