Cornbread makes everything better. This is my easy go-to recipe that's adapted from the Bob's Red Mill cornmeal package. It's easy enough to whip together at the last minute. It's also a great recipe to get your little ones to help with. Especially if they love mixing. Don't they all love mixing?
What you'll need:
3/4 cup medium grind cornmeal
1 1/4 cup whole wheat or white flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup 2% milk
1/4 cup margarine (or butter)
1. Combine dry ingredients in mixing bowl.
2. Add egg, milk and margarine and mix until smooth (for about a minute, don't over mix).
3. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes in a greased 8" square pan.
4. Serve it warm. It's so good warm.
Yeah, this is a winner. It's a staple in our house. I like to make extra and warm up the leftovers and serve it with jam or honey for breakfast. It's also a highly adaptable recipe. You can add charred corn kernels, jalapeño or sharp cheddar to the batter to great effect.
