    We were given a box of TJ's cornbread mix. It is delish--very sweet and with some real corn in it. SO good, I thought of throwing the rest of my bag of corn meal away.

    But, at the store I learned that a 10 oz. bag costs nearly three bucks.

    So, now I'm wondering: Does anybody know how to duplicate this taste at home?

    Thanks.

    I have a great corn bread recipe that I've been making for years. But it doesn't call for corn. I haven't ever tried the Trader Joe's version so I can't tell you how it compare's.
    My kid's and husband won't eat corn bread with corn in it :confused3, so I never make it that way.
    My recipe is sweet and cake like. You use bisquick and lot's of butter. Wait, maybe Trader Joe's is cheaper after all. My recipe makes a 13x9 pan. It's also to die for cooked in a cast iron skillet! That's how my Mom used to make it. Let me know if you'd like me to post it. And I suppose you could always try adding corn to it...

    Corn Bread

    2 C Bisquick
    1 C Sugar
    1 C Milk
    2 Eggs
    2 sticks of Butter (melted)
    1/4 t Baking Soda
    5 or 6 T Yellow Corn Meal

    Mix all ingredients till smooth. I like to use a spoon for this. Pour in an un-greased 13x 9 pan
    Bake 325 or 350 for 25 to 30 minutes, till the top is golden.

    If you bake it in a cast iron skillet, it gets a delicious crust on it.

    Enjoy!
