    Will this recipe work with sweet potato/yam puree? I’d like to use the couple of cans, I have, in the pantry.

    Love this! I made my first batch of pumpkin cornbread last fall, and completely forgot about it until just now! Going to give your recipe a spin this weekend!

    Are you sure you didn’t mean 1 cup of buttermilk vs. the 2 cups stated? 2 cups seems like a lot of liquid for the amount of dry ingredients. I made the recipe following the instructions exactly, but as I was adding the milk, it looked very soupy! I should’ve followed my gut and only added the one cup. The taste was great, just way too wet.

      The recipe should definitely have only 1 cup!!! I didn’t even realize I wrote 2! My apologies! I’m glad you still enjoyed it though..corrections to be made asap

  21. Jan Not Specified Not Specified

    It might just be me, but I don’t think the recipe has been corrected yet to reflect the 1 cup of buttermilk instead of the 2 cups listed. I’m trying this delicious-looking recipe tonight to go with my chili! Perfect!

    What do you serve pumpkin cornbread with? I’ve never heard of this before, but we love pumpkin! Thanks.

  23. Wendy Not Specified Not Specified

    Just a heads up. I noticed the ingredients mention 1 cup sugar but the directions don’t mention when/where to add it. I accidentally left it out because I didn’t see it in there. It was still yummy but would have been better with the sugar :)

  24. Jasmin Not Specified Not Specified

    I have a personal fav cornbread mix, if I were to use it and add pumkin to it what would I leave out beside the cornmeal and flour?
