This was so moist and not what I expected. I had lots of fresh green beans and tomatoes from my garden and this was a perfect cornbread to go with them.


This was pretty good, although mine was not moist it was fairly dry. I used 2 cups of zucchini because that's what I had frozen. Don't keep self-rising anything on hand, so I added 1 tsp baking powder and another 1/4 tsp of salt and it worked fine. Next time I would increase the sugar to about 1/4 cup because I prefer my cornbread a little on the sweet side. The cottage cheese gave it a very different flavor.


We really liked this cornbread. It was a great side with our tortellini soup. I have never seen self rising cornmeal in California, so used regular and added baking powder and soda. I added a bitmore sugar and green onions were all I had, so used those instead. They worked and made the flavor yummy. I will make this again.
