i like it very lightly sweetened. there was somewhere i used to have it like that all of the time when i was younger, it had had to be in either middle school or high school, and it was yummy. i loved it with lots of butter and chili.

When I was a kid we ate corn bread that was not sweet and actually somewhat hard. Here in Chicago cornbread is sweet and sometimes served with honey, which I like as well. I read in earlier posts about adding Jalapeno to cornbread, very good. My step Dad, Ken Ratliff (now passed on), was a great cornbread experimenter (sp?). He would make Jalapeno cornbread as described above. He also would use Blue Cheese, Cheddar cheese and parmesan in and on top.

One of my favorite foods is red bean soup topped with chopped onion and eaten with cornbread.

I like it both ways. A little sweetness, but not really sweet.

I like it sweet, being a yankee, and my wife likes it with no sugar at all, being from East Texas.

Talking Either Way

I'll take my cornbread either way. I'm a bread lover, period, but I'm an absolutely huge cornbread lover. My grandmother always tells people how much I love it - I could eat a whole pan of it as a kid, and I actually came close to doing that a couple of times!

So it doesn't matter to me if it's sweet or not-so-sweet. I especially like it when it's light and fluffy. When I make cornbread myself, though, I do tend to make it more sweet than not-so-sweet. But as long as it isn't oily, I'll eat it.

That's the one thing I don't like, which my grandmother does sometimes when she makes cornbread - having the oil sink to the bottom of the pan, making the cornbread soggy and camoflauging the flavor.

I like to be able to taste the corn, so not sweet for me. Have you ever put some cornbread in bottom of bowl, put onions on top of that, add some nice hot soupy chili and then cheese on top of that? Yummmm pure heaven. Down with sweet cornbread!!!!!!

Will admit to loving a good corn muffin for breakfast though. Yummyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
