Keep a batch of this in your pantry and you can bake your own from scratch cornbread whenever you want. Having a prepared mix ready to go saves you time; making it yourself saves you money. Do try this with the whole wheat flour. Whole grains add a health benefit, and the nutty flavor of whole wheat complements the cornbread.
  • 4 cups whole wheat or all purpose flour
  • 4 cups cornmeal
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ⅓ cup plus 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  1. Place all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well with a whisk.
  2. Store in a plastic container with well-fitting lid.
  3. To use:
  4. Preheat oven to 425F.
  5. Place ¼ vegetable oil in 8-9 inch baking pan or iron skillet.
  6. Place skillet in oven and allow to heat until very hot, about 10 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, place 2 cups dry mix in a medium bowl.
  8. Add 2 eggs, 1 cup milk, and stir till all ingredients are moistened.
  9. Remove pan from oven and pour batter into pan. The batter should sizzle when it hits the oil.
  10. Return pan to hot oven and bake until brown, about 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool and serve with butter.
