    Cornbread!

    I must admit to a lifelong, terrible weakness for Cornbread. So, what's everyone like for mix? Or do you go all out
    and go totally homemade? I find Trader Joe's mix to be very good, and easy.

    My dad is an old southern cook, older than all of you guys put together. He uses something called "corn kits" that he buys in the grocery store.

    mmm, I love cornbread. I only have it maybe once or twice a year, though we almost always have at least a box or two of Jiffy mix.

    I'm a yankee but have always liked corn bread, as long as it's sweet and light. We always use Jiffy mix but the Martha White is also good. Besides just slathered with butter I just LOVE it buttered and with maple syrup over it - man a delicious dessert!

    Jiffy. Although I seldom make it, I do love it.

    Agreed, but only if it is real maple syrup and not the fake stuff.

    That's the way I make it, with one added ingredient. I cut up a couple pieces of bacon and cook it in a cast iron skillet. When it's crispy done, I stir the bacon into the batter, and drain most of the bacon drippings from the skillet. Then pour the batter into the skillet and put it into the oven. I also use green chilies ( Anaheims) instead of Jalapeno peppers.

    I've never been able to make cornbread as good as my grandma, so I just have given up trying.

    I use my grandma's recipe that's from Boston, so no bacon or peppers. It is generally served with liberal amounts of butter and honey.

    Really cornbread's the only thing I miss because the few other food items I miss I can make successfully myself. But no matter what I do my cornbread will never be like that of my mom or one of my former coworkers. And I don't really like about 90% of traditionally southern dishes. Where I used to work the aforementioned coworker and my boss would occasionally cook up a huge meal for all the employees (which was an awesome thing for them to do), and typically the only thing I would like would be the cornbread. So I'd eat about ten pieces and nothing else.

    I miss my Mom's cornbread. She made it salty instead of sweet. Seems like everyplace I go people are serving corncake instead of cornbread

    I'm pretty much a Jiffy kind of guy because that's all I've learned. Had a bad experience with a martha white product (I think it was mix for pizza dough, but I can't remember could have been brownies) so I don't think I'll ever use her stuff.

    That bacon one does sound good and one member of my mom's extended family always makes a really good corn bread/cake/something that has actual kernals of corn in it and isn't as dense as actual corn bread that I just love at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    But now for some reason you've got me craving some good buttermilk biscuits with butter and honey.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Bob's Red Mill GF cornmeal... cornbread recipe right on the package is tough to beat. With minced scallions.

    I miss bacon...

    We'll be bringing cheese corn grits to Thanksgiving this year.
    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.

    Let's not forget corncakes too. Basically a cornmeal based pancake for those not fortunate enough to have tried them.

    I am a Jiffy Mix man, myself. I heat the cast iron skillet in the oven and then pour the batter into the heated skillet to bake.

    Skillet is the only proper way.

    oi very true. Replace half the flour in your pancake mix with corneal and the result is surprisingly yummy
