Corn Bread Mix

I'm back! I'm still pretty queasy but have actually been able to get out of bed and do a few things around the house the past few days. Which includes a bit of cooking. My poor husband has been starving!

I decided I was ready to start mixing it up again today, and to thank my husband for doing EVERYTHING for this past month, I made one of his favorite things ever- Cornbread!

Corn Bread Mix (single use)

1 cup flour
3/4 cup corn meal
1/4 cup powdered milk
1/4 cup sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder

Big Batch (makes 4 uses)

4 cups flour
3 cups corn meal
1 cup powdered milk
1 cup sugar
5 tablespoons baking powder

What else you'll need

1 cup cold water
1/3 cup oil
1 egg (or substitute)

Combine 2 1/4 cup of mix with the water, oil and egg (I used applesauce instead) in a mixing bowl and stir until smooth.

Pour into a greased square baking dish.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-30 minutes until the top just starts to brown. 20 minutes will make it like cake, 30 will make it dry like 'real' corn bread. I make the cake style because then I can pass it off to my daughter as dessert.

My husband likes to eat his with butter and honey on top but it's also great to dip into chili, stew or other messy meals.
