This is the first review that I have written and unfortunately it has to be a negative one. I should have read the other reviews. Of course this was moist, it was the greasiest thing I have ever made and by just touching the bread, it stuck to my hands. This recipe includes way too much fat to be necessary...the butter is overboard and fat free cheese is okay...I also added corn niblets. I made this for the Fourth of July but ended up having to make another batch from BETTER HOMES & GARDENS COOKBOOK (excellent moist and firm recipe by the way!) the morning of the BBQ. this was a huge, disappointment. Especially since this is my first problem with a recipe on this site.

We couldn't get enough of this cornbread. I just took it out of the oven 15 minutes ago and it is half gone! I cut down the butter to only 6 tablespoons and the sugar to 1/3 cup. I also added extra jalepenos and cheese and a dash of cayenne pepper. It turned out perfect - moist but not greasy and very flavorful.

I followed this recipe to the "T" and it had WAY too much butter in it! it should of had at least half of what it called for. hubby said it was good but way too greasy and refused to eat the rest of that BIG pan so it got thrown away, so be careful about the butter it was way too greasy
