Cornbread, The Absolute Best Cornbread!

The Absolute Best Cornbread.  Amazing flavor.  Easy to make in one bowl, and absolutely delicious with chili.   Easiest bread to make. Alohamora Open a Book

We are full on into the month of September now.  Even though it's still 100 plus degrees here in AZ I've started to pull out some of the "Fall" recipes in my repertoire.  I feel a week into September means I can start cooking like it's Autumn even if it is way too hot here.

Growing up we always made cornbread from a Jiffy box.  It was good, but it was all I ever knew.  However, now that I am so much older and wiser ;) I know that Jiffy cornbread doesn't even compare to the sweet delicious taste of The Absolute Best Cornbread recipe I'm hooking you up with today.  

This Cornbread is amazing, absolutely amazing!  

Besides amazing taste, this cornbread is so very easy to make.  I dare say it is the easiest bread ever.

Easy to make, tastes AMAZING, and you only have to dirty one bowl and spoon.  Can it get any better?  I say no.   

Recipe: Alohamora slighly adapted from Mel's Kitchen Cafe
Active Time: 10 minutes
Inactive Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 8-10   

1/2 c. cornmeal
1 1/2 c. flour
2/3 c. sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 c. oil
3 Tbsp butter, melted
2 eggs
1 1/4 c. milk

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and grease/flour a 9x9 inch square pan. 
  2. In a medium bowl mix the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together with a fork, whisk, or spoon.  
  3. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients.  
  4. Add the oil, butter, eggs, and milk into the center of the well. 
  5. Stir the wet and dry ingredients together until they are combined well.  The batter may be a little runny, but don't you worry about that.  Trust the recipe.  
  6. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  7. Bake at 325 degrees for 30-35 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. 
  8. Let cornbread cool for a few minutes before cutting into it, but you should know that I consider warm cornbread one of the most delicious things ever.  
  9. Enjoy with butter, plain, or over chili!  Just enjoy it!
  10. Store leftover cornbread covered in the fridge for 3 to 5 days. 

Happy Absolute Best Cornbread eating, and may your Fall weather be a million times better/cooler than mine.
