Molasses Mistake Cornbread

"A moist cornbread made with molasses. It doesn't use any butter, because it really doesn't need it. I came up with this one night when I was trying to make a cornbread sweetened with molasses. When I was cooking it, I realized that I'd forgotten to put butter in it. I ended up cooking it anyway, and it didn't need any."

This bread tasted horrible! The molasses gave it an awful taste and it was very bitter. I will definately NEVER make this recipe again.

After reading the other reviews, I wasn't sure I wanted to make this. Since someone mentioned that the molasses made this taste nasty, I decided to substitute it with corn syrup. Good call! I ended up adding about 3 tablespoons of that, and then 3-4 tablespoons regular sugar. This was the best cornbread I've ever had. =) Even my sister, who formerly hated cornbread, enjoyed it. Yum!
