Simple Cornbread Mix
I love cornbread. I have a few dishes that I change up with just a simple cornbread mix. Over the last year as I’ve been changing our diet to a more clean diet (eating whole foods from natural sources). Making the majority of our food from “scratch” is one way I avoid artificial sweeteners and preservatives. Also, making things from scratch allows me to use organic products with out paying organic pre-made prices. This takes a little more time then convenient methods, such as buying a prepared box.
And lets face it, buying convenient food in the store is just that: convenient. But what if you take just 5 minutes in your evening to make one convenient item yourself? Well today I have a recipe just for you. In just five minutes you can have one ready to go “bag” of corn bread mix ready in your pantry or refrigerator. If you’d like more then one, get out as many bags or containers you’d like and fill each bag with one recipe.
This is a great thing to do ahead of time if you work outside the home. If plan your meals on a Sunday (or day off), a little prep ahead makes easy nights on days you worked all day. Or maybe your a busy stay-at-home-momma with activities and household responsibilities, if you plan ahead it will save you time and money.
Heres the simple steps.
All you need is five ingredients (flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt and baking powder), measuring cups, teaspoons and as many ziplock bags or storage containers you’d like. Also, be sure to print the wet ingredients and directions. Cut out the wet ingredient recipe to fit onto the bag and adhere with tape.
