Applesauce Cornbread

Applesauce Cornbread

rocketD 2

"This is an easy, quick recipe for cornbread that's dense, and adjustably sweet. It will smell great as it bakes and comes out with a great golden crust. It can accompany anything. I love it served with salad, soup, or chili. Add herbs for extra flavor."

I should definitely have read the reviews before I made this. Threw the whole thing out after one taste...all I could taste was baking soda. I do believe there is an error in the amount.

As is, this recipe is not very good. Too much baking soda -- the bitterness is terrible. Switch to self-rising flour and cornmeal and it becomes much better -- rating at least a 3 and a half.

Unfortunately, we took one bite and discarded the remainder, very disappointing. Curiously, this tasted and smelled like fish.

Without the sugar it does not taste sweet if you prefer it that way. It is moist and easy

I hope there was a misprint in the recipe re: the amount of baking soda. This bread was AWFUL, tasting strongly of baking soda. Could it be 1/2 tsp???

Not that great, sorry. Thought the applesauce would make it more moist, but it wasn't that moist. Ok flavor but that amusement park cornbread recipe on her is a million times better. I will ad...
