Easy Peasy Cornbread

When the weather turns cooler what is  better than a pot of soup, stew, chili or gumbo simmering on the stove top? Cornbread, hot out of the oven with butter melting on top! 
The perfect combination!
1 cup baking mix
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1/4 cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 375degrees. Pour 1-2 tablespoons oil in10 inch cast iron skillet and spread around.. Place in oven for 5-10 minutes, just long enough to heat the oil. 

Mix baking mix, cornmeal, sugar and baking powder in large bowl. Mix milk, egg and melted butter in a separate bowl, add to dry ingredients. Mix by hand, there may be a few lumps. Pour into hot cast iron skillet and bake for 30 minutes or until edges are golden brown and a toothpick when stuck in the middle comes out clean.

Helpful Hint: The dry ingredients can be mixed and stored in a baggie or glass jar in the freezer.  

I will be posting this to these blog parties:
