so many people use a “packet” to make cornbread….the ones that you add an egg and water???? i have tasted them before, and they are NASTY….dry, crumbly, and “instant tasting” and my moms cornbread was always so good so one day i asked her how she made it.
when i got her recipe, i FLIPPED out because it was just so dang easy!!!! i have NEVER used the packet again because this is the EASIEST, YUMMIEST, BEST cornbread recipe EVER!!!! and to top it all off it’s made in your trusty ol’ cast iron skillet!!! (you can make in a Pyrex dish if you choose) this recipe is VERY versitile.
you can add MANY different ingredients to it and it doesn’t affect the outcome…I’ve added grated cheddar…..green chillis, jalapeno, I’ve even poured it on top of taco filling for “tamale bake” so GO AHEAD…..HAVE FUN AND PLAY WITH IT!!!! your imagination is the limit!!!! ENJOY!!!!!
