    Hungry Cornbread help!!

    Advertisements
    So, my DF and I celebrated a late valentines day and I made my very delicious very spicy chili, and decided that after all that work (it takes 3 hours and has to get refrigerated over night before it's actually perfect) I should forgo the cornbread from a box and make it from scratch for the first time. Long story short... it was horrible. VERY dry, VERY bland, not sweet at all. So, I need help because now I'm determined!!

    Any great cornbread recipes out there (Sweet not salty)!?!?

    i always buy the jiffy corn muffin mix and add about a 1/4c sugar to each box. the boxes are small so i usually make 2.


    if you would like to make it from scratch i would google corn muffins instead of corn bread. i hope i helped

    I've had great luck with this recipe.

    Homesteader Cornbread Recipe - Allrecipes.com

    Letting the milk/cornmeal sit really seems to help. (See directions.)

    Forgot to add: my notes say to beat the batter for five minutes once it's all mixed. I use an electric mixer (natch) but that seems to make it very fluffy.

    I use the packaged cornbread mix, but add in some shredded cheese, jalapeno and frozen corn. It turns out really good.If you like it sweet instead of spicy, skip the jalapeno and add in a couple spoons of sugar. Still yummy.

    Huge difference from the recipe I used (called for 2 tablespoons sugar not 2/3 of a cup lol) I"ll have to give this a shot and see how it works!! Thanks everyone!!
