    I did make this corn bread. The only ingredient change I've made was add 1 tsp. salt. I did bake bread in three 5 x 3" loaf pans. delowenstein

    VERY good recipe!! I made this to go with Hoppin' John and the cheese and chives were the perfect pairing with the ham and black-eyed peas! It was a bit dry, so next time I make it I may add a can of creamed corn...... maybe a bit more cheese ..... maybe a tablespoon or two of Parmesan would work. All in all ....... this is a delicious cornbread///

    This was good. Not sure I liked the addition of chives. The addition of the cheddar cheese was delicious All in all good.

    Loved this cheesy cornbread! The chive addition with the sugar gave it a savory with a little sweet taste. It was great with chili!
