Updated Cornbread Recipe

Looking for a way to update and improve cornbread mix?  This is a simple idea that will make your next cookout a hit.

Step 1:

Start with your favorite cornbread mix.  I like Martha’s Sweet Cornbread mix.

Mix according to the package directions.

Step 2:

Add the flavor!  Stir in a can of mexicorn (drained) and 1/2 cup coarsely shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese.  I like the Green Giant Steam Crisp Mexicorn.  It has a very fresh flavor.

Step 3:

As you have been mixing the ingredients together, your pan has been heating in the oven.  If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, it’s ok to use a baking dish – just follow the suggested times and oven temperatures on the package.

Pull the hot skillet from the oven and spray with a little cooking spray.  Pour the mixture into the pan and bake for about 12 minutes.  Just until the bread is set and springs back when touched.

Step 4:

When the cornbread has finished baking remove from the oven and let cool.  I cover the pan with tin foil until ready to serve.  It steams the bread and gives a very soft and and moist texture.  I cover the bread right after removing from the oven to keep the steam and heat in the skillet.
