    " It was excellent "

    A really nice moist cornbread. I didn't hear a sizzle but I still had a nice golden brown cornbread after 37 minutes. Not sweet (of course) but a very tasty cornbread. Had some honey on one piece. I love cooking cornbread in a cast iron skillet. Thanks for the great recipe. Added my pictures, too.
