Diane's BEST Cornbread

NO this isn't a piece of cake...this is cornbread....believe me it tastes SO MUCH
better than my picture makes it looks!...sorry that it looks so plain because its anything BUT plain!
Years ago...MANY YEARS ago, one of my neighbors brought my family a really nice dinner after I had come home from the hospital with a new baby. I don't remember everything that was on the menu that night (like I said, it was many years back) BUT I remember that she brought her cornbread, because I called to get her recipe for it. It was the best cornbread I had ever eaten. The only cornbread that I had ever eaten (before this cornbread) was dry and crumbly and left me thinking that I didn't want to ever eat it again...NOT this recipe! This cornbread is sweet, moist and makes you think you are eating cake for dinner (but it's not so don't put frosting on it...you might be disappointed with that). It has great texture (I know...that is a fetish of mine, food has to feel good on my tongue as well as taste good too) and its super moist...no crumbs with this bread. Try it out with one of our soup recipes...it will make everyone smile at dinner tonight.

Diane's BEST Cornbread
Cream together until smooth:
1/2 c. margarine or butter
1 c. sugar
3 eggs

Add:
1 1/2 c. milk
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. cornmeal
3 c. Bisquick

After mixing all ingredient together pour into a well greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes... UNTIL an inserted toothpick comes out clean and the middle springs back when touched. DON'T overcook or it WILL dry out (been there-done that)! Cool 5-7 minutes before serving. Eat UP and ENJOY!

Happy Cooking~

  1. I still haven't found the perfect cornbread recipe for me....I'll have to give this one a try. It sounds good, but sweeter than I am used to. That might be just what makes me like it best in the end. Thanks for posting it!
