I used to use Jiffy's Corn Muffin mix all the time whenever I was in mood for corn bread, but each time I made it, it never quite satisfied. Then one day, when Big Sis was like 5, she handed me a printed recipe from an online Holly Hobbie Muffin Maker game she was playing and said she wanted to try making these one day. It totally cracked me up because I didn't even know she knew how to print stuff out! So, we gave it a try and much to my surprise, we all loved it. It's now my go-to corn bread recipe. I changed it just a tad and love it even more. :) Here's the recipe. Hope you love it too!
