Mammy's Cornbread

It just about goes without saying that if you stay overnight at one of the plantation hotels across the South, you're going to be offered cornbread with your meals. This splendid version remakes a classic buttermilk recipe with a few easy changes. After your first bite, you'll probably agree with the philosphy that cornbread goes with everything!
Serves 8
*freezes well

2/3 cup Carnation Nonfat Dry Milk Powder
1 cup water
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 cup (6 ounces) yellow cornmeal
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon pourable Splenda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg or equivalent in egg substitute
1/4 cup Land O Lakes no-fat sour cream

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with butter-flavored cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine dry milk powder, water, and vinegar. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, Splenda, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir egg and sour cream into milk mixture. Add milk mixture to cornmeal mixture. Mix just to combine. Spread batter into prepared baking dish. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Place baking dish on wire rack and let set for at least 5 mintues. Cut into 8 servings.

  1. You are going to LOVE this comment!!!! I made this the first time and gave it a minus was horrible! Then I read in one of the newsletter about checking the date on your baking powder or doing a test to see if it was still good...(remember..I am NOT a cook) I looked at my can and it had expired about 2 years earlier!!!
    So, I made it again and we loved it! Just goes to show that even if you don't like a recipe first, give it another go with really fresh might change your mind...
    Hubs and I give it 5 stars.

  2. Wow I just seen this comment, that is awesome! So glad that you made it again with fresh ingredients... fresh high quality ingredients makes ALL the difference in the world!
