Chilly Night Cornbread

Because I promised to try and on occasion be informative and educational I thought I would share my world famous, secret cornbread recipe. Every farm girl must have a cornbread recipe to go with their fried chicken and greens. Oh maybe that's not just a farm girl thing and greens..YUCK. Never really understood that whole thing. Anyway, it's very gourmet because I am high maintenance after all. Not really. Actually, I really am high maintenance but this is not gourmet by any stretch of the imagination.

1 box Jiffy golden yellow cake mix (you'll have to splurge to buy this it's very expensive..$.39)
1 box Jiffy cornbread mix (same here, but it's worth it)
2 eggs
1/2 c. cold water
1/3 c. milk

Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl, obviously you shouldn't try to mix it directly on your countertop. Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish, pour mixture in. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until the top is nice and golden yellow brownish but not too brownish. If in doubt do the toothpick test, if it comes out clean it's done. Serve warm with butter and honey cuz that's how we roll at the Koons Zoo. Oh and by the way it's really not top secret so feel free to take full credit and pass it on to all of your friends.

Here's a cornbread testimonial from one of my children this evening during dinner.

"Mmmmm the cornbread is sooo good but the chili, well how many more bites do I have to eat of the chili before I can have more cornbread?"

Don't worry I won't give you the chili recipe.

  1. Wow! I'm impressed! Using one mix = cheating, but using two mixes?? It's a legit recipe! I like your style.
