Homemade Cornbread Mix


I've always made cornbread from a box, but after I tried cornbread in the slow cooker, the realization that how easy it is to whip up this side dish had me somewhat hooked! I went on the hunt for a homemade rendition.

This was basic, good cornbread. I ended up adding a bit more sugar to my version, and it yielded more than my favorite box mix, which is fine by me! More to eat!


Homemade Cornbread Mix
Serves: 6
recipe from Sweet Pea Chef

3/4 cup cornmeal

3/4 cup all purpose flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix all ingredients together. Store if needed.

When ready to use, mix in a separate bowl:
1 egg

3/4 cup skim milk

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Add the wet ingredients to the cornmeal mix and stir until just incorporated. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Cook for 20-25 minutes if using a 8x8 baking dish, or 15-20 minutes for muffins, removing the muffins or bread from the oven when the center is no longer jiggly and the edges are slightly browned.
