Basic, Frugal Cornbread
40 mins (prep 5, cooking 35)
5 ingredients
16 servings
A simple, basic, no-frills cornbread to accompany chili, greens, ham and cabbage, or to serve with your favorite jelly/jam/spread any time the plate seems a bit bare and the meal seems to want stretching. If you are being very frugal, reconstituted dry milk works just fine. Note: if you want to increase it for a 13x9 pan I find it works better to use 1 1/2 times the ingredients instead of double.
