This is a recipe that I posted elsewhere, and the muffins are my photo. This indeed can make cornbread and it is the recipe that is on the Quaker container, but I find that we like it in muffin form best. Just an explanation on these muffins. We live at a higher altitude in Colorado, so the muffins tend to "peak". When we lived in Indiana, they looked "normal".
This has been my "go to" corn bread recipe for years. To make it more like the southern style corn bread my grandmothers made, I make a few adjustments. First, I reverse the measures of flour and cornmeal. Second, I increase the oil by 50%. Third, I heat the oil in my cast iron skillet (in the oven as it preheats) while I combine all of the other ingredients. Then I add the hot oil to the mixture and stir thoroughly. I pour it all back in the skillet and bake. The heated skillet gives the bread and wonderful crust and the hot oil in the batter helps it to "come together".
This is the only cornbread recipe you will ever need. To make it extra special, bake it in a cast iron frying pan. We serve it warm with butter and honey. The next day, split a piece open, and top it with tuna salad and a piece of cheese.
This is my favorite corn bread recipe, but instead of making corn bread, I make it into corn muffins. It makes 12 muffins and they are delicious!
Yes! I have been looking for this recipe - it came from the Quaker cornmeal container. It really is yummy. I usually sub 2 T. honey for the 1/4 c. of sugar and use freshly milled corn and whole wheat flour. If you want it to be dairy free (we have a DD with allergies), you can use rice milk 1 to 1 in place of the milk.
The perfect cornbread recipe. Not too sweet, great texture. I double it and bake in a 9 x 12 pan for 22 minutes - delicious! I also make it with whole wheat pastry flour, and it turns out great.
I used to make the cornbread recipe off the Quaker corn meal container, but never wrote it down. Then I started to buy my corn meal in bulk (with no recipe on the package!) and had a hard time finding one as good. I searched for a recipe like it and this seems to be the one. Delicious hot from the oven with butter. Thank you.
