The Cornbread Recipe Thread....And FIGHT !!!!
« on: July 20, 2017, 09:27:22 PM »
You all are Jiffy Boxers, eh? Fought for the cast iron? Scratch cooking ain't exactly soldiers' work.

Cornbread war long done, we're all just folks now.



One box Jiffy mix, follow box directions.  Add a bit of sugar.
Cook in oven in a cast iron skillet.
Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.


Bring me my Broadsword and a clear understanding.
Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing.
Take women and children and bed them down.
Bless with a hard heart those that stand with me.
Bless the women and children who firm our hands.
Put our backs to the north wind.
Hold fast by the river.
Sweet memories to drive us on,
for the motherland.

Buttermilk cornbread.

1-1/2 c. yellow cornmeal
1/2 c. flour
2 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
1-1/2 c. buttermilk
1/4 c. oil (anything clear and relatively tasteless) or bacon drippings (pork fat rules!)

Use an 8x8 baking dish for thick pieces, a large cast iron skillet for thinner pieces. For a casserole or 13x9 baking dish, double the recipe. 450 deg for 20-25 min.

Call it cornbread, corncake, or corn-based dessert, but this is the recipe that I use. I pretty much failed at making cornbread until I followed this recipe. This comes out perfect every time I make it, and tastes great. I make it in a 10" cast iron pan, and it comes out a perfect size for me.

I've been know to use Jiffy.

But I've also been known to make my own cornbread from scratch.

With creamed corn.

And copious amounts of sugar.
