Here is the recipe I use when making a moist honey cornbread.

Your creative mind is your ticket to greatnesss.

It could be that you are not using enough oil....1 c. ea. flour & cornmeal...3 teas. baking powder....3/4 teas. salt...1 c. milk...1/3 cup oil....(add 1 T. sugar if you like sugar in your bread)...or...maybe you are baking it too long....Also, it can depend on the cornmeal used.  At a mill...you can get differently ground meal.  I've found the courser the grind the drier the bread....(my mom's family is from OK...nothing better than a hot slice of cornbread smothered in butter (and honey on that second slice!)

How many eggs are you using and what size cornbread? I will be able to answer after you answer these  questions.

Try adding a small can of cream style corn to the batter when mixing it up.
