A new twist on cornbread

Got another easy recipe for you all to try! (I know, I know ~ seems that's all I've been posting about lately!)

This one is called Corn Bread Cake. It's not as grainy as regular corn bread and I think that's why I like it so much. The recipe is from a book called "Miserly Meals" by Jonni McCoy. I would encourage you to take a look at it ~ the book is packed full of easy, delicious, reasonably priced recipes.


1 (8.5 oz) box Jiffy corn muffin mix
1 (9 oz) box Jiffy yellow cake mix
4 egg whites (or 2 eggs)
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup water

Combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Whisk together until well blended, but don't overmix.
Pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Evenly distribute the batter in the pan. Bake @ 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick or knife passes the "toothpick test".

*Note: This recipe can be baked into muffins if you prefer. Line muffin tins with paper liners. Fill them half full. Bake @ 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes, or until they test done with a toothpick.

I usually serve this with chili. Last night was our Life Group for church and this is what I brought. The menu was chili, cornbread cake, French bread, tossed salad, a veggie tray and assorted desserts. Everything was so nice ~ the food, the great message, and connecting with others. It was a wonderful evening!

Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!
