The thing about cornbread is that you can make the batter as thick or thin as you like...just add more cornmeal. If you need more batter, add more liquid and then add cornmeal till the consistency looks right.

As far as all of these 'sweet' cornbread recipes.....to each his own, but I never add sugar to cornbread...ever..(that's cake) Try leaving out the sugar, add some onions and brocolli that you've sauteed till limp and some grated cheddar.

My basic cornbread recipe is...heat a bit of oil in your pan till hot, beat one egg, about a cup of milk more or less (never measure) in a bowl with a fork,dump in enough Martha White self rising cornmeal and stir up till it looks right..dump in the pan and bake at 350 till done..(roughly 20 min..give or take)If you like crust, about 5 minutes before it's completely done, remove pan and flip the whole thing over and let the top side bake on the bottom for about 5 minutes.

Add anything you like to the batter...I make my cornbread for stuffing all seasoned...add the onions and sage at the batter stage and you've eliminated a step.

Have fun with cornbread...it's very forgiving and you can add anything you can think up to it....another great add to the onions and cheeze is a cup of browned sausage and chili seasoning....

That's so true about flavoring the corn bread the way you want. I was thinking that first recipe is ideal for chili and the second one with the brown sugar would be great with some pork chops and turnip greens. Thanks for all the ideas! Keep 'em coming!

If I remember correctly, the batter was pretty thick...so I would think it would work in a springform pan. I used light brown sugar and dark brown...had a bit of both to use up too. I would like to experiment with it and add some corn, cheese and peppers. When I first made this recipe it went with a ham shank that I cooked with potatoes, carrots, onions and cabbage. That was some meal...leftovers then made a nice batch of bean and ham soup.

I've got a friend that adds a can of whole kernel corn, (drained) cheese, and some hot dogs cut up..I don't eat hotdogs anymore, but it sounds good. Kinda like a corn dog casserole...

Something I like to add to a basic cornbread recipe is a packet of the Goya brand ham seasoning. I use it in a big recipe, you might season to taste in smaller batches because it may be a bit too much. I also add salsa and/or hot sauce and cheese. A former friend of mine used to make TO DIE for cornbread in which she put pulled or BBQ pork in. Yum, if we were still friends I would ask the recipe

I've heard a moist cornbread can be made with sour cream. I've never tried it, but there are recipes out there.

To me, cornbread needs that cast iron skillet. Blueberry cornbread is probably my favorite. Cheddar and herb (basil? I don't remember) is another one I like.

Thanks for the replies. I've had a lot of dry cornbread and a few that I've liked, including some with sour cream, cheese, hot peppers and corn. The bacon idea sounds great. It's not that unusual for me to have a party and need to serve 35 or 40 people so that's why I'm asking for big recipes. Keep on sending them!

If you have cookbook "Joy of Cooking" do the Cracking Cornbread recipe. It's divine. The crackings makes cornbread a whole n'other experience. Can't find cracklings use country style pork skins and crush them.

Melody,
That idea of putting hotdogs in your cornbread sounds so good.
Cornbread is just one of those simple pleasures in life.8)

Double-Corn Spoon Bread

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : LowCal (Less than 300 cals) LowerCarbs
LowFat (Less than 30%) Veggie

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cups plain soy milk (soya milk)
2 cups stock -- or broth
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon dark honey
1 cup cornmeal -- preferably stone-ground
1 1/4 cups fresh corn kernels -- (cut from 2 or 3 ears corn)
1 tablespoon minced shallot
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 egg whites
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 375 F. Lightly coat a 3-quart souffle dish with olive oil cooking spray.

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the soy milk, stock, olive oil and honey. Heat until very hot but not boiling. Reduce the heat to low so the mixture simmers. Add the cornmeal in a stream while whisking constantly. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the corn kernels, shallot, thyme, baking powder and salt and stir to combine.

In a large, spotlessly clean bowl, using an electric mixer on high speed, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently whisk 1/3 of the whites into the cornmeal mixture to lighten it. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the remaining egg whites into the batter, mixing just until incorporated.

Pour the batter into the prepared souffle dish and sprinkle with the cheese. Bake until puffed and lightly golden, about 35 minutes. Let stand in the dish for 5 minutes before serving. Serve hot.

Serves 8

Dietitian's tip: Spoon bread is made from cornmeal that is cooked on the stove top before folding in whipped eggs. It's then cooked again, in the oven, like a souffle. In this light version, only the egg whites are used.
