A must make recipe for Cornbread

Acquired this a week or so ago, made it as I was told it was incredible, and it was. Just sharing my good fortune.

Hope you have a chance to try it, that is, if you really enjoy cornbread with a twist.

  1. yes, this is really good!! I made it years ago.

    1. I've been ISO a cornbread recipe forever. Can you tell, do they come out moist and cakey. >>???

      Everytime I try a cornbread it's gritty and dry.

        moist can you say moist? oh my lord, very moist and very delicious

      2. Yes it really is more a corn pudding than a cornbread. I've made it before and it is very moist and tasty but just not real cornbread. Though anything made with Jiffy Mix cannot be considered real cornbread, just some sort of un-frosted cake.

          well Candy, it wasn't corn pudding at all. it set up just fine. it was cutable and sliceable and yes of course, real corn bread is derived from using the corn meal plus the other original ingredients from scratch or from start to finish. But this one was a well enjoyed treat by all. I'd not done it before and upon receiving the recipe after asking for it when I overheard someone speak of it, I am not disappointed at all. Happy cooking.

            Well actually all "puddings" are not just spoonable. Consider Yorkshire Pudding which is nothing much more than a big pop over baked in a roasting pan and cut into squares. I did not say the recipe was not a good one, just not corn bread. ALSO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did not say I did not enjoy it. It is just not cornbread. As one who guards all of the really old and true valuable basic recipes I am critical of anyting that tries to pass itself off as the real thing. How about Saigon Hoppin' John from that truly bad newly published Lee Bros. Southrern Cookbook. Does the book have some good recipes? Yes? Are SOME authentic? Yes? Certainly not all, and, after reading the book cover to cover and noticing not only errors, food stylist errors who had obviously never read the recipe before the photo shooot, and recipes/concepts that were just plain wrong I am just vigilant. That recipe while good is a good corn puddng, a corn bread it is not.

        2. i adore cornbread :) Is this Jiffy mix available in Toronto?

            I've got about three boxes I bought in a moment of nostalgic weakness - it's what my mom used to make what we in our ignorance called "cornbread" - which I will happily send to anyone who'll pay the shipping...

              Gee, what a generous offer! Costs less than $1 for 3 boxes at stores here vs $3 for shipping. I'll pass.
