This is really bad, very bitter.

Avocado Cornbread Review by Pam on February 27th, 2012:

I loved the muffins. The slight sweetness made them great with my coffee the next morning. I used half & half for the milk.

Avocado Cornbread Review by Marg on February 3rd, 2012:

I used a touch more milk to get the right consistency. My husband does not like avocados and I am trying to get different ways to get avocados into him. I have just found one. Thanks

Made this recipe and some part were good but parts were bitter can anyone tell me why? I liked the little bit that was good but I had to throw them away.

Avocado Cornbread Review by Holly on January 4th, 2012:

I used this idea by using a well ripened avocado with an off-brand "jiffy" mix instead of from scratch. Used just like the box directed, plus a peeled/mashed avocado. They took a couple minutes longer than stated to bake. They were beautiful, moist & delicious. Could not distinctly taste the avocado, but no bitter taste at all! Very simple & I did not have to throw out the avocado--I found a way to use it! Next time I will leave the avocado more chunky. I will make this again!

Avocado Cornbread Review by Phil on December 12th, 2011:

My muffins did not rise. Also, I used vanilla soy milk.
Could that have been the reason?

Avocado Cornbread Review by bluemonchu on December 9th, 2011:

Awesome! I substituted water for the whole milk and it turned out perfectly delicious; dairy free and no bitterness! I think the avocado has to be super ripe for this, otherwise it'll be bitter. I only get the smaller ones [not the huge haas ones that are bright green] and use them only when almost too ripe and very dark skinned.

Avocado Cornbread Review by Barb on November 15th, 2011:

I, too, thought these had a slightly bitter aftertaste. Perhaps the amount of mashed avocado needs to be noted. The avocado I used measured 1/2 cup. I will eat the ones I made, but will not be making the recipe again.

Avocado Cornbread Review by Kayla on October 16th, 2011:

Really bad. I followed the recipe exact, but the muffins came out with an odd bitter taste.

I needed to add a little more milk to get the consistance I wanted and only used 3/4 of my avocado (it was huge). They were as good as advertised.
