    Star Mom's Cornbread mix

    Combine the dry ingredients below in a jar to give as a gift, or just keep handy for the next time you want to make cornbread!

    3 cups sifted flour
    3 cups yellow cornmeal
    1 1/2 cups instant nonfat dry milk
    3 1/2 tbsp baking powder
    2 1/2 tsp salt
    3 tbsp sugar (optional)
    Include a decorative tag with instructions for making the cornbread:

    Combine

    2 1/2 cups of the cornbread mix
    3/4 cup solid vegetable shortening

    3 eggs, lightly beaten
    1 cup water
    Preheat the oven to 425 Place dry ingredients in a large bowl. Cut the shortening into the dry mix until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add eggs and water and mix well. Bake in an 8"x8"x2" greased pan for 15-20 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean

    How is this? When I do cornbread from scratch it always seems grainy and dry. I need a good recipe.

    Question Re: Mom's Cornbread mix

    How dry and crumbly is it after you cut in the shortening? I was wondering if the shortening could be cut in when you make the mix, then storing it that way. Whatcha think?
