ISO Perfect Cornbread

Anyone have a TNT (tried and true) recipe for cornbread?
I'm looking for the kind that doesn't have any kernels in it.

This is the best cornbread I've ever had, but it's so fattening that I only make it once in a blue moon:

2 c Bisquick
1 c butter
1 c Half & Half
1 c yellow cornmeal
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
3/4 c sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten

Scald cream with butter. Add to thoroughly mixed dry ingrediants. Mix in eggs.

Pout into a greased and floured 13 X 9-inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.

Jkath, this is one from the back of White Lilly white self rising cornmeal mix. I make it all the time.


2 C. self rising cornmeal mix
1 1/4 to 1 1/2C. milk or buttermilk
1/4C. vegetable oil or melted shortening
1 egg, beaten
1 to 2Tbsp. sugar(optional- I leave it out)

Preheat a well greased 8 or 10 inch skillet in 425F oven.

Combine all ingredients just until moistened, batter should be lumpy.

Carefully remove skillet from oven & pour batter into hot skillet.

Bake 25-30 minutes for an 8 inch skillet or 20-25 minutes for a 10 inch skillet or until top is golden brown.

Slice & serve. Makes 8 servings.

Best cornbread is a very personal thing. Some like their cornbread sweet, others do not. Some like it firm, others like it a little mushy. Some like it hot with peppers, others don't....

Chocolatchef, you are very right! I like my cornbread light & fluffy on the inside & very crisp on the outside. I also perfer it not sweet & hubby likes his sweet unless I make it with cracklin's/ If I'm having cornbread & milk though, I like it thin & crunchy so it soaks up the milk without getting too mushy.

The best cornbread always has some bacon fat in it.

the best ever corn bread

In the South, I live in Tennessee< we make a lot of cornbread.
I happen to like sugar in mine. Some do and some don't

we also use either White Lily or Martha White self rising flour as It is a softer wheat. We also use buttermilk. It does make a difference



Best-Ever Traditional Southern Cornbread

3 cups Self-Rising Cornmeal Mix
2 to 3 Tbs. sugar (optional)
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
3 large eggs, beaten
2-1/4 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter or margarine, divided


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine cornmeal mix and sugar, if using, and set aside. Add vegetable oil to a 10- or 11-inch cast-iron skillet. Place in oven for 10 minutes to heat skillet.

Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine egg, buttermilk and 1/4 cup melted butter. Add all at once to cornmeal mixture. Stir until just moistened (batter should be lumpy). Remove skillet from oven and swirl oil to coat bottom and side. Pour batter into hot skillet. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Brush remaining 1/4 cup melted butter over top. Serve warm.

Variation: To make cornsticks, substitute a well-oiled cast-iron cornstick mold. Heat as directed above. Fill each indentation about 3/4 full and bake for 12-15 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean. Brush as above with melted butter. Let stand 2 minutes before removing from the pan. Yield: 8-10 servings
Hope you make these and enjoy them

Linda in Tennessee

My local grocery stores carry this boxed stuff, called Jiffy Corn Mix, or somthing like that. The box is blue and about the size of one of those small Grape Nuts boxes, and the recipe on the back is pretty darn good! Then again, I'm not too picky about my cornbread. The best part is, this stuff is only 42 cents a box!

Yep, although it isn't homemade, it is still good...and easy, you only mix it with milk, egg and oil
