Rita's Self-Rising Cornbread Mix

Recipe by  

"We went camping a lot with our family. I found that pre-mixed items worked so much better for us. Yet I also found that I liked using them at home as well. Also my food budget made difference on what kind of milk I used for this as well."

  • Cook's Note for Making Cornbread:
  • Mix 2 eggs, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, 1/2 cup flour, and 1 1/2 tablespoons honey together in a bowl. Mix 1 1/2 cup cornbread mix and 1/2 cup all-purpose flour in a separate bowl; form a well in the center. Add egg mixture to the well and stir to combine batter. Pour mixture into a greased 9x9-inch pan. Bake at 375 degrees (190 degrees C) until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes.

Awesome stuff. I was making a recipe from this site and realized I needed "self-rising cornmeal." I didn't want to go to the store and found this recipe. I changed the servings to 2 with the calculate button and got about 1 1/4 cups, which was all I needed for a recipe. Thanks, I will use this again. It was a definite time saver today. For anyone unsure there are other recipes on this site and net that use "self-rising cornmeal." Here are just a few from Allrecipes: http://allrecipes.com/search/default.aspx?ms=0&qt=a&pqt=a&fo=0&rt=r&w0=Self-rising%20cornmeal&words=All&p34=SR_SortByRating&sb=ra

well, the obvious problem with this recipe, is, once you make the "mix".. what about the ingredients/measurements to make the actual cornbread? How much milk? How many eggs and how much "mix" to make a loaf or muffins? There's no sugar, so this would be straight cornbread.. I'm going to have to tinker with this mix to get the exact milk/egg/sugar to mix ratio.

People... those complaining about a recipe lacking, it's NOT! This is a Cornmeal Mix Recipe... not a recipe for cornbread. When your recipe calls for a Cornmeal Mix, use this . As for my own review of this, it's a great Cornmeal Mix base. I generally leave out the powdered milk and add a little more salt. I also add 2 Tbsp of baking soda to make for a more even rise. This recipe is great for Hoecakes!

I had to eliminate the dry milk for allergies figuring that when mixing batter, soy milk can be added later. This worked out fine in the recipe I used!

Wow!!! Thank you, so much. Great to have on hand.

Probably swell if there is some liquid ingredient!! Water, milk, something. I added both water and milk until I had a batter instead of a sticky dough. Its in the oven now. Need to be careful to add ALL the ingredients!
