It takes just 5 minutes to get this cornbread on the table. I'll be honest - it tastes better baked in an oven. But it's still great in the microwave, and sometimes I only have 5 minutes!

I was very skeptical of this... really? cornbread in 5 minutes? but it was GREAT! I added a little more sugar and a little more oil because i like moist cornbread. I put it in for 3 minutes in my microwave (900 watt) and it came out perfect. I'll definitely be making this in the future!-29 Sep 2010


Decided at the last minute to make cornbread with the chili tonight so I came to this to find a recipe......and I found this one. Since it was the first time making it, I didn't change anything. The hubby said it could be sweeter. I eat mine with butter and honey so I didn't notice. Even the kids liked it. I loved how easy and quick it was to make....and in the microwave. I'd never heard of cornbread done in the microwave before. Mine took a total of six minutes to be completely done but even at's a heck of a lot shorter than in the oven! And great for a last minute add to dinner! You definitely have to try this!-22 Apr 2010
