Easy Cornbread Mix

A little effort can go a long way! Making your own cornbread mix is a great example! All you need is some basic ingredients and a large storage container. :)





First of all, you will need a large bowl for your ingredients. Combine the following : 

 8 cups flour 
 6 cups cornmeal 
 1 1/2 cups sugar 
 7 Tbls baking powder 
 2 Tbls salt

 Mix well.

Pour into your storage container. Label your container with your instructions so when you grab it out of the cupboard you won't even need to look up directions ...saving you even more time! I simply used a recipe card and some strapping tape. (Classy, right?;)


 Instructions to include: 
 Combine 2 cups mix with: 
2 eggs 
1 cup milk 
1/4 cup melted butter 
 Bake at 400 degrees.
 8×8 pan for 20-25 minutes
 Muffins for 15-20 minutes
\

This is all you will need to add to your dry mix!! This recipe will make approximately eight 8×8 pans!! Now, next time you need a quick batch of cornbread, it will take nearly zero effort! But sshhh....no one needs to know that! :) Remember, cornbread does not need to be boring! Our favorite way to eat it is with some butter and real maple syrup for breakfast. Another fabulous way to enjoy it is to top with raspberries or strawberries and whipped cream...or add green chiles and cheese to the mix before baking. Lots of possibilities! Let me know if you have some creative ideas!
