Then pour 2-3 Tbs. vegetable oil into the cooking spray coated skillet, pour in the cornmeal mixture and scrape all the goodness out of the bowl with a wooden spatula, place the skillet in a preheated 350* oven, let it bake and start checking after 25 minutes or so. When the top looks ready take it out of the oven and stick the cutting knife blade in the center and insert all the way to the bottom of the cake, if it comes out clean it's done.
I then call the wife whose patiently waiting with a butter knife and the butter.
Thatíll work.

Tomato pones!!! Mix cornmeal with chopped tomatoes and salt. Fry by the spoonful. Yum.

As far as cornbread goes, I like it all. I like any kind of corn. Period.

When I want to make the wife (a southerner) mad I talk about corn bread back home.

In South Dakota corn bread went toward the oven baked cake like and slightly sweet end of the spectrum. If I mention Jiffy corn bread mix, she’ll tell me to pack my stuff and leave. I don’t think she’d be kidding either as she takes her corn bread seriously.

Here in Eastern NC corn bread is very much on the pan fried hard and salty end of the spectrum. I’m not a fan of that style at all. But don’t tell my wife.

PS. My wife says to tell all the jiffy box folks that they are going to hell, it’s wrong, wrong, wrong and that their grandmas are rolling in their graves,

I'm not much of a fan but have made it dozens of times for parties.

My own bacon diced up and cooked in a cast-iron skillet, then a pack of Jiffy. Occasionally a diced Chipotle, particularly if for a superbowl party where I was serving my chili.

Cold and rainy here in NC so I baked a cake today - no jiffy ever in this house ! My fiancťe is from Eastern NC so she does the fried cornbread thing - Iíll act like itís good but itís not - but when I introduced her to my jalapeŮo and cheddar hot from my ancient square cast iron skillet she almost ate the tips of her fingers off !!

I donít remember the last time she fried them little hockey pucks come to think of it !!


No sugar no jiffy ... yea thatís the two rules

Yellow corm meal flour , 1 cup each, baking powder. Egg, salt, little oil, buttermilk.

If'na I is feeling a bit high falutin I will sift the dry and mix the wet separate then combine other wise it just goes together in one bowl with a palm full of frozen corn and a can of green chilis. Bake in cast seasoned with bacon grease at 375 until the top cracks.

Hamhocks and pintos or navy beans. Good for a days worth of meals for me.

Add some cream style sweet corn to the mix. Itís fantastic and keeps the cornbread moist.

Jiffy.

Butter and honey. Served with a big glass of milk, it basically becomes a meal.
