Cornbread

Cornbread


Yes, I know this is basically a cooking blog. And, yes I know, you were probably expecting a cornbread recipe. I've made cornbread from scratch and it's not all that difficult. But you know what? This is my favorite, and apparently, according to the box, America agrees with me. I'll be having this on New Years Day with my Hoppin' John and Collard Greens.

my mother in law does the jiffy with an extra cup of milk and a package of vanilla instant pudding, makes it super moist!

I love this cornbread, too. I love how it makes such a great crust on top. I plan to have it as well on NYD.

Antoinette said...

Ha! I just enjoyed some leftover corn pudding with my coffee for breakfast this morning, and ate the last bite before reading your blog post. I make my corn pudding with Jiffy, too. It's tasty AND versatile! Adding some diced jalapeno peppers is also popular in our house. :)

Paula said...

Gotta love Jiffy! So did you make muffins or pan cornbread? Is that a tupperware measuring cup holding the egg? If so, I've got those, too, only in the 1980's orange color!

Amanda - thank you! I hope you have a good New Years too!

Kat - I'm glad others think so too!

Tracie - just like Grandma used to make!

I want my Jiffy Cornbread Mix !!!
You can't get Jiffy in this stinkin' country and I have to rely on friends and family members to send me a care package a few times a year!
It isn't fair. :o(

Oh this is the family favorite too!! I have tried and tried to make one from scratch but no one likes it...it's Jiffy for us!

Marjie said...

There's a lot to be said for Jiffy mixes. Not gonna lie, sometimes you just want easy for food.

I love Jiffy! I always put a pat of butter on top of each muffin right before I pop them in the oven.

I've actually never been a huge fan of cornbread. I mean ... everytime I've had it it's been really dry. The only time my mother makes it is in conjunction with her chili, and I like fritos in my chili anyway.

Does that make me Un-American? I do like Collard Greens though!!!

Andrea said...

I love cornbread!! Sounds delicious!! Hope you have a great New Year's!! :)

OK, lady, I have no idea what's wrong w/ Blogger tonight -- won't serve up the page with the link to your email -- so here's the recipe, with my snarky editorial comments intact. And you've gotta let me know if you make this. It's divine!:

RECIPE: Corn Pudding

SOURCE: Allrecipes.com - Becky
PREHEAT: 350
MAKES: 12 Serves

INGREDIENTS:

1 15 oz can whole kernel corn, drained
1 15 ox can cream style corn
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup sour cream
1 8.5 oz pkg Jiffy cornbread mix

METHOD:

1. Preheat oven to 350. Don't bother greasing an 8x8 glass casserole dish, as the finished product is plenty buttery.
2. In the casserole dish, carefully mix all ingredients. I mix slowly and purposely don't try to achieve a completely uniform consistency.
3. Bake 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

You go, girl -- I love this cornbread too. I often adulterate it with something hot and spicy, because I can't help myself.

Pam said...

Antoinette - thank you for the corn pudding recipe! I can't wait to try it!

SweetT said...

My family's favorite too!

If America doesn't agree with you, I do. I love that stuff.
