      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:


      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.

      Its real good, the shortening makes it lighter and not as grainy….good luck!! and thanks!!

      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?
