Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This sounds really good (as a dessert). Real Southern cornbread does not have flour, sugar, coconut, or spices. Will probably try this.

I loved this! Sweet but not too sweet, and a great winter/holiday flavor. I use pecans for the nuts and add a little extra cinnamon and nutmeg :) For those wondering about nutritional info, I figured out that the whole thing (made using pecans for nuts and whole milk) is about 2500 calories. So if you do cut it into 12 servings, a little over 200 each.

never heard of coconut in corn bread, will er a try, also nutmeg wld. zip it up - i make corn bread to stuff the turkey.

Really people! these recipes are delicious and loaded with fat and sugar! But you're worried about whether or not it's healthy for you?

With nutritional info this would make this site the one to go to!

Most of the recipes are submitted by people like myself. I have no nutritional facts on most of the recipes I would submit. If you are nutritionally smart, you will be able to judge for yourself how healthy a recipe would be.

Most intelligent people can just look at a recipe and tell if it isn't healthy PER SERVING. nutritional information?

if you want to make it healthier try 1/2 c of white whole wheat flour and 1/2 c of reg flour, use skim or 2 percent milk and eggbeaters for the egg and cut back on the coconut, I would leave the nuts as they are healthy....I know still nothing in black and white on the nutritional value but still better for you
