1. Yeah … that is it. This sounds like the perfect combo. I am been making mine with a bit of sourdough starter and it is very good, but occasionally it comes out too dry. I am going to try this one. I also struggle with from- scratch cornbread. We like ours with ham & bean soup. If you have not tried that, you should. Yummy!

  2. Sounds good, I will try this as soon as I can use my oven again. 😉 I love me some good homemade cornbread. I used to use the Jiffy box too, back when I didn’t know any better. LOL

  3. I’m from the south too. I don’t know where your hubby is from so it must be like Mississippi. My grandmother came from Tenn.
    when young, & my granddad from Arkansas. I was born and raised in Texas. My grandmother “mama” taught me how to cook
    corn bread and we never put sugar in it. With sugar we called it corncake. However, I never thought about using wholewheat
    flour. It sounds good though & I thank you. I’ll have to try it and I thank you for it! I enjoy your blog very much. Somewhere online I read about an easy way to cook brown rice. I stopped by to see if it was you. Thanks again for the recipe, It sounds delicious but I’ll make
    it sans sugar. Have a very blessed week!

    • My hubby is from South Carolina 🙂 his mother made it without sugar, but he much prefers it to be the “corn cake” sweet stuff. Thanks for stopping by!
