Corn bread

Anyone have a favorite corn bread recipe that is fairly easy? Just started taking cooking seriously and would like to surprise my family with some cornbread.

Cornbread Waffles:

2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups yellow corn meal
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt


Heat waffle iron.

Beat eggs in a bowl. Stir in milk, oil, corn meal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt until smooth. Batter should be smooth and pourable. If it is too thick add a tablespoon of milk at a time.

Grease waffle iron. Pour some of the cornbread mixture into the waffle iron. Cook until done.

Re: Corn bread

Our favorite recipe is the one from the corn meal package which is the same as above but only uses 2 teas baking powder and veggie oil instead if butter. I like to add corn to it as well. If your looking for cornmeal recipes in general we LOVE cornmeal pancakes. One of our favorites is lemon blueberry cornmeal pancakes, but we like the plain cornmeal ones as well. We like cornmeal mush too (think grits or cream of wheat but out of corn meal instead of wheat.

We make blueberry blue corn pancakes and they are really good. We just follow a regular pancake recipe and sub 1/2 blue corn flour. Blue pancakes are fun!
