Post Your Worst Cornbread Recipe

Yes, I want your poor excuse for cornbread recipes.

Planning to make cornbread dressing and need a dry cornbread recipe. You know the kind I'm talking about. It's the kind that makes you choke when you try to swallow it. I figure that would make the best dressing.

Maybe you can try one of those boxed mixes? Just bake it a little longer than you're supposed to. I've tried them, and they come out quite dry.

Here's one I personally guarantee to rival the Saharan sands. Works great to make dressing from, but has no other use whatsoever! It's the one I use for the same purpose.

1 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar (optional)
2/3 cup milk
1 large egg, beaten
3 tablespoons oil (poured into cast iron pan to preheat, then stirred into batter just prior to baking)

Bake in preheated 450-degree (F) oven for about 20 minutes.

I know. In part, that's why I posted it. The cornbread I make is too moist and rich to make good dressing. Figured there's gotta be people out there who make lousy cornbread. :D

Audeo, thanks for the recipe! Can I use it the same day, or should I leave it out for a period of time?

Dry as the Sahara. Makes you choke when you eat it. Better used for a hockey puck. That's what I was looking for. Figured such a cornbread would make the best dressing.

I've never made cornbread dressing, but I'm seeing so many shows on TV making it that I have to try it. I have a turkey thawing the fridge. I'll do a practice meal next week and test it out.

Psiguyy, there is simply not enough milk on the planet to wash this stuff down! Ironically, the recipe came from the back of a package of cornmeal, but I don't remember what brand. And it makes wonderful cornbread-based dressing. You can use it immediately to make dressing, or leave it out. I can't imagine how the stuff could dry out any more....

Regardless of what recipe you use, just be sure the stuff is good and soupey when you put it in the oven to bake...lots and lots of chicken stock...because this cornbread will soak up many times its own weight in liquid. Darned fine dressing stuff!

Maybe I'll serve some of it to guests who tend to dominate discussions. :twisted:
