alrighty, I picked a recipe vaguely at random (less sugar than most) and bought corn meal and buttermilk. Let's see if I can give it a whirl before the buttermilk goes off......

I looked at the mixes where you still need to add sugar, fat, egg, milk, and it seemed almost as much effort, plus so many preservative additives.... so I though sod it, one try won't hurt, just so we know....

Now i just have to get around to it...

Corn meal
Flour (I use Oat)
sugar
baking powder
salt
milk
egg
oil

I fiddle with ratios and sometimes toss a handful of fresh corn kernels in.
I sometimes add apple slices or blueberry rolled in brown sugar or molasses.

Just get a box of sweet Jiffy. Your children think that you would know how to make cornbread, because mom can do anything she sets her mind to do.

If you think making cornbread from scratch is a mess then try making dumplings.lol.

Cornbread from scratch is cheap, quick, easy and delicious.
It becomes more of each with every try.
Recipe on back of the meal container.
