    There are lots of pix just google cornbread and click on Images.

    I don't have the ability to post pix (no camera yet).

    Cornbread lends itself to many addins also. Some like it hot adding minced Jalapeno. Some like it cornier I like to add a can of creamed corn, instead of the liquid in two packs of instant mix. It usually needs an extra five minutes or more to brown the top, but is especially rich and delicious.

    Just make sure the ounces of the can of creamed corn closely matches the ounces of the liquid in the recipe you use.

    I'd love to be your friend, Kasia. For cornbread, just buy a Jiffy mix if you can find it. It would be in the baking section of your store with the flour, sugar, cake mixes are. If you can't find it, just Google it. The basic recipe is incredibly simple, and has come out perfect every time I've made it.

    The best cooking utensil is a cast iron skillet. I spray mine with oil first. When you pour the batter into the skillet, pour it all over the bottom of the skillet, don't just pour into the middle, as that will cause it to stick there.

    If you don't have a cast iron skillet, just put the batter in a 9X9 pan or a casserole dish. Spraying the container insures easy to remove servings.

    Go ahead and see if you have the ingredients on hand. If not get them. Corn meal can also be used to make grits. You'll be the hostess with the mostest serving up these dishes, and you're in for a real treat when you taste your first cornbread. It's GOOD!

    Hi, Kasia!

    To answer your question, I'm not much of a baker, but my sweetie FrankZ is. He makes bread a lot. I do make cornbread. Here is my basic recipe. I don't put sugar in it and like it better unsweetened.

    Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Heat an 8 inch cast iron skillet and then add a tablespoon of grease (bacon fat or vegatable shortening) Continue to heat on low.

    Mix together:
    1 cup of cornmeal (I prefer white cornmeal over yellow.)
    2 tablespoons of flour
    1/4 teaspoon of salt
    1 teaspoon of baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
    1 egg
    1 cup of buttermilk

    Beat it all together and pour it into the skillet. Bake for 25 minutes or until done. Eat with soups, stews, beans, or just slather it in butter. :)
