I usually love the recipes offered here. This one is my least favorite cornbread in a long time. It came out dry and bland. The recipe calls for sour cream without mentioning the portions. Taking this recipe off of their website could be the perfect idea.

Sour cream called for in instructions for mixing does not appear in the ingredients list nor is it attached to a quantity
