Thanks for the dinner Idea for tonight :)

I always put sugar in mine but otherwise recipe just like yours. Try breaking some up in a glass of milk and eating it (and drinking the milk). YUM!

Yes, definitely add sugar to it. I also like diced jalapeņo peppers in it. They don't make it hot, just a little spiced. The peppers get sweet as they bake.

Personally, I just use boxed corn muffin mix. It's tough to beat.

I`m not quite sure where, but there is a thread on here somewhere when I asked about cornbread making without using anything sweet in it as I don`t generally like to mix sweet with savory.
Uncle Bob suggested that I try it, but like yourself said it`s better with sweet in it.
so I tried it plain, and although it was very nice, the aroma of it was fantastic but it seemed to be missing something, it needed a "Sweet" element to it, it really did and he was perfectly right.
and it`s not at all strange tasting as I imagined it would be

I like my skillet cornbread plain with a little butter but my DH always adds butter and honey to his.....we're both happy with the arrangement
