    I made this last night and it was one of the best batches of cornbread I've ever eaten. Yes, the mayo made it very moist. Since the directions given don't mention this, I wanted to say that I had to cook it at 425 for about 30-35 minutes before it was done all the way through. Also, if your oven has a heating element up top, make sure you put the cornbread on a lower oven rack--it rises quite a bit, and you don't want the top to burn. With that said, this recipe produced a cornbread that was nicely browned and had a thick layer of crispy goodness on top and bottom by the time it was done. This would make really good corn dog batter.

    Wow, I've never heard of adding mayonnaise to cornbread but I'll give it a try. I would imagine it adds a really nice twist and gives it extra moistness. Thanks for the 5 recipe.
