  • “Bergy, this cornbread is absolutely YUMMY!!!I luv the addition of cheese and corn kernels, they make the bread extra moist and tasty.As I didnt have a jalapeno in the house and all the shops were closed, I subbed a green bell pepper for it, which was a nice addition (though definitely not spicy lol).THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this lovely recipe with us. We all enjoyed it a lot and will make it again!”
