    I am a BIG fan of cornbread and thought this recipe was very good. Even my husband, who doesn't like conventional flour-containing corn bread, thought they were excellent. The muffins come out very moist.

    The flavor and texture of these was fine, interesting and lighter than my gluten-containing recipe, with one important caveat: there is WAY too much baking powder. I am wondering if there's a typo and the intention is 2 tsp. powder. I tried it as written--since what do I know?--and found the powder flavor overwhelming. I have made a batch with 1 Tbsp. and found it much better, although the powder is still detectable. I may try going down tsp. by tsp. until I find something that works.

    This was my first attempt at baking gluten-free after a recent diagnosis. What a wonderful site! Thank-you!

    My honest opinion on the recipe: It wasn't as light as regular muffins, but it tasted OK except for a lingering taste of baking powder. Does it really need 2 Tablespoons?

    I made these this morning for a group of people with assorted dietary restrictions. They loved them. However, since one person can't eat eggs I used 1 teaspoon flax meal with 3 teaspoons water instead of the egg. One person can't eat refined sugar so I used 1/4 cup maple syrup and I only used 1 teaspoon baking powder. For milk, I used homemade almond milk. Plenty of changes, but a tasty good recipe to start with, so thank you, Scott.

    I was so hoping to find a good recipe for gluten-free cornbread that's actually moist...not dry and crumbly! Thanks so much for letting me (and others) know that this is the case!
