    We just use Marie Calendar mix and throw in a little sugar! It's mighty tasty!

    1 cup yellow corn meal
    1 cup self rising flour
    1 cup milk
    1 egg
    1/4 cup sugar
    1/4 cup cooking oil
    Mix all together. Add ingredients to a cast iron skillet. Bake 425 for 15 to 20 minutes or until slightly brown on top. I've been using this recipe for over 40 years and my mom before me. It's not real sweet but more so than the boxes of cornbread.

    I just use Jiffy cornbread mix. I tried recipe after recipe for years, and could never find one that was as good as Jiffy. My daughters just refer to it as "the family secret recipe."

    I have used the Jiffy Mixes as well, but don't think they are as sweet as they used to be. Sometime ago we felt they had made a change perhaps to cut down on expenses, so now I add extra sugar to the mix and it seems to help, but seems to make the cornbread more crumbly though.

    I have used Jiffy Cornbread Mix with a Jiffy yellow cake mix. It makes a really nice sweet bread.

    I use either the Jiffy Mix or the GFS mix, follow the directions, but replace 1/2 of the liquid with either honey or maple syrup and have had compliments on the flavor...

    Honey Cornbread:
    1 c. sifted flour : 3/4 c. cornmeal: 3 tsp baking powder:1/2 tsp salt: 1 egg, beaten:1/4 c. honey: 2tblsp butter or margarine, melted: 1 c. milk
    Sift together cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt. Combine egg, honey, butter and milk into another bowl. Add to dry ingredients, stirring just enough to moisten. Pour batter into greased 8' pan. Bake 400 oven for 30 minutes or til test clean. Cool in pan on rack. Serve warm with honey and butter. Source: " Farm Journal's Complete Home Baking book"
    Alternatively:
    1 c. packaged biscuit mix: 1 cup cornmeal: 1 tblsp baking powder: 2 eggs: 1 c. milk: 1/3 c. honey: 1/4 c butter or margarine melted. Mix dry ingredients. In small bowl, beat eggs til blended; then stir in milk, honey and butter ( the honey will come out of the measuring cup best if you put the melted butter in there first). Pour egg mixture into dry mixture and stir just until evenly moistened. Pour batter into 8" greased baking pan. bake 400 degree oven 30 minutes or until clean test. Let cool slightly, then cut into squares and serve warm.
    Honey Butter: in small bowl beat together 1/2 c. butter and 1/4 c honey til creamy and well blended. mound into small crock and serve.

    As you can see the recipes are basically the same. The Sunset recipe states it yields a fine crumb, non crumbly cornbread, which ought to be a bit sweeter and more cake like than the Farm Journals since it has more egg and more honey. Enjoy.
