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 en...

Tastes great... Super easy.

RE: the other reviewers who say this is missing something, or who don't like the "whang" of molasses--add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. When you cook with molasses you always need a bit of baking...

Having read prior reviews, I used maple syrup instead of molasses, and I also added corn to the batter. This was not the best cornbread I've ever had, but it was good for a low-fat recipe. I'll ...

I added about 1/4 cup of honey and 1/2 tsp of baking soda. It was great!!

Probably won't be making this one again, it I do it'll be greatly modified. I liked the different flavor from the molasses but it was missing something else in taste. I didn't like the texture...

I'm sorry, but this was just plain tooooo bitter! And I even added a little sugar to the batter. On the bright side I liked the texture. Maybe making it without the molasses wouldn't be too ...
