Re: Corn bread

When using buttermilk you need baking soda rather than powder, Correct?

How do you make corn bread waffles? This sounds really yummy.

Never mind. I just read through the posts and noticed you have already posted the recipes.

In my recipe it is baking powder no baking soda, comes out perfect. I guess sometimes there are exceptions to the rule :-)

Re: Corn bread

Not as directly helpful, but I've found the on-the-box recipe for cornbread to be very bland and I've had several people set theirs down rather than finish it. Jiffy Mix cornbread on the other hand, is always devoured.

I don't have a from-scratch recipe I like, so I'll have to check out what others have shared.

Re: Corn bread

I use different recipes depending on what we're eating it with, but my favorites use honey instead of sugar. And adding chopped jalapenos and grated cheddar is magical.

And the very best way to prepare it is to pour the batter into a hot, greased cast iron skillet before baking.

Re: Corn bread

Subbing...DS LOVEs cornbread and waffles so that one is going to have to happen! I use the one on the bag of cormeal I get and like it a lot. It's 1 cup corn meal, 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt. Then it's one cup milk, 1 egg, and 1/4 cup oil (I use coconut). Mix wet and dry separate and then combine. Cook in a greased pan at 425 for about 20 minutes.

I melt a stick of butter in my cast iron skillet in a 400 degree oven, take it out and pour 2/3 of it in the cornbread batter, mix it in quickly then pour the batter over the remaining melted butter in the hot skillet. So good!

It kinda depends on if you want northern-style or southern style. Northern cornbread is lighter and sweeter, southern is more dense and is more savory. I grew up on southern-style, so that is what I prefer, Northern just tastes like cornmeal cake to me. If you would like a southern style recipe, I'd be happy to post the old family recipe.
