On to the best corn bread ever…..

This honey cornbread is my go to recipe, there rarely are left overs because it is so good.  The corn bread is sweet enough to be eaten as a treat with orange honey butter, or as a cheery side to salad and soup.  Motivation to learn how to make corn bread from scratch came to me when I read the ingredients in Jiffy’s cornbread boxed mix:

INGREDIENTS: WHEAT FLOUR, DEGERMINATED YELLOW CORN MEAL, SUGAR, ANIMAL SHORTENING (CONTAINS ONE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING: LARD, HYDROGENATED LARD, PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED LARD), CONTAINS LESS THAN 2% OF EACH OF THE FOLLOWING: BAKING SODA, SODIUM ACID PYROPHOSPHATE, SALT, MONOCALCIUM PHOSPHATE, NIACIN, REDUCED IRON, THIAMINE MONONITRATE, RIBOFLAVIN, FOLIC ACID.

Hydrogenated lard????  I’m not a rocket scientist but I’m pretty sure hydrogenated lard is detrimental to your health. I used to make Jiffy mixes all the time.   In fact the blueberry muffins were one of my staples in college.  I had no idea what ingredients went into a lot of boxed mixes.  I always looked at the amount of  fat, sugar, or fiber on boxes but not the ingredients.  To make sure you are buying real food look at the ingredients on the box.  If you can’t pronounce the ingredients and have no idea what they are don’t buy it.  A good rule of thumb to know if you should buy something or not  is to look for 5 ingredients or less, or if you could make it in  your kitchen.

I have tried quite a few corn bread recipes but this one if my favorite.  It always is gone really fast.  Enjoy  whole grain corn bread free of  lard, chemical, white sugar,and animal shortening.

    Thanks so much for this recipe. I was debating on what recipe to choose but I loved how this one had no sugar in it. It looked beautiful out of the oven and was yummier than I thought it would be!

  2. What is wrong with lard? If you get it from pigs that have been fed a correct diet, lard has wonderful saturated fats. I also use tallow and schmaltz in my cooking. Have you read Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon Morrell? It’s a wonderful resource about traditional real foods.

    We have made this cornbread probably ten times, and it always turns out awesome. I get lots of compliments on it from guests. It is our go-to cornbread recipe! And my husband who is not a fan of whole wheat loves this cornbread.
