    Instead of baking this as a bread I used it as a topping for my Omega fish pie instead of the usual pastry. I did use less sugar than your original but apart from that it is almost identical. - 11 Jul 2014

    My first time ever making cornbread and this was a wonderful recipe! I added a bit less sugar as it seemed too much and it came out plenty sweet enough. The kids love it and say they want it every day lol. Also I used a brownie tin and cut it into squares - 17 Mar 2014
