Quick Buttermilk Corn Bread

    I thought this was just okay. I am used to and prefer sweeter corn breads. I added some chopped up jalapeno since other reviews said it was bland. Mine cooked all the way through, with no problems, in a le creuset skillet. Probably will look for another recipe.

    I buried this in chili and it still was too dry, salty and bleh. Would definitely benefit from the addition of some sugar (maybe honey?) and perhaps some corn kernels. It's a super-fast and easy recipe though. Might work best if you're going to do something else with it like make dressing. Definitely not edible on its own though...

    I've made this twice, and while the batter tastes good, I cannot get it to cook all the way through. It browns on top and stays mushy in the middle.

    too salty for my taste, but that's easily rectified next time i make it, otherwise it's delicious in both flavour and texture. used polenta instead of cornmeal (much more readily available in the uk) and used a mix of plain soya yoghurt and unsweetened soya milk with a dash of lemon juice to replace the buttermilk, as we're dairy free due to allergies. will definitely make this again

    Skipped the oil since I was making in an 8-inch square pyrex instead of cast iron. Coated pyrex with cooking spray. Cut salt to 3/4 tsp. and added a handful of shredded sharp cheddar and 1 tsp sugar. Baked at 400 for 20 minutes. Could have been a little moister, maybe the oil would have helped, but the taste was good.
