Mimi's Cornbread

Here's a secret family recipe for you- my Mimi's cornbread. So delicious.

I made a half batch for just the hubby and I, but I'll give you the full quantities to make a 9x13 pan.

What you need:
1/2 c melted butter
1 jar baby food prunes *this is the secret ingredient. DON'T LEAVE IT OUT!
3 c Bisquick
1 c sugar
3 large eggs
6 Tbsp yellow cornmeal
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 c milk

What you do:
Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl.

 Add the wet ingredients.

Stir to combine.

Pour into greased pan. Like I said, the quantities above make a 9x13 pan. Tonight, I cut all the ingredients in half and made an 8x8 pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.


P.S. I also made a small batch of this but shhhh, don't tell...I didn't follow the directions. I just mixed the squash, cranberries and apple together, added a tsp of butter, cubed and a tsp of sugar and threw it in the oven with the cornbread. Sometimes you gotta cut corners when it's 10pm and you haven't eaten yet ;)
