  • “This recipe gets four stars because it’s so doggone cheap, easy and quick. I drop them from a shallow metal gravy spoon for an after-school snack two or three times a week for the kids, and they like them just fine. Add a half cup of minced onions and a half teaspoon of pepper and they come out rather like hush puppies. Or add a teaspoon of sugar, and drop them by soupspoon onto the pan and they’re small – a whole plate full – great with tea.”

  • “I missed the non-star review onthis recipe when I chose it for My-3-Chefs, so I’ll just review it without getting credit for the game tag. Anyhow, I had intended on halving this recipe, but accidentally used the entire 1 cup boiling water, which created a cornmeal soup, so I added another 1/2 cup cornmeal and 1/4 tsp salt, but forgot to add any extra butter.I used Smart Balance 50/50 Butter Blend in thisI got 8 total and 20 mins was perfect to get them browned and crispy on edges and done inside.This is not a typical cornbread recipe that I’m used to making.The density and texture of these were like cornmeal cookies but with no sweetness.In fact, these were really bland.I used a foil-lined baking sheet and these stuck.I was able to peel the foil away and keep these intact.With a bit of Smart Balance with flaxseed Oil spread on them, they were okay, and with the chili I made for dinner, they were okay. My bf tried them and did not like them at all.4 stars for great directions, ease of making and simplicity, but a 2 for taste, for 3 stars total.I’m sorry these just weren’t to our liking.Thanks for sharing, it was nice to try something new and different for cornbread.”
