    Here's a dumb question - can I make cornbread using polenta/grits? If I'm not mistaken, it's made from a different type of corn, and ground coarser than regular corn meal - will a loaf made from it be edible?

    This is what I used and I thought it had a better texture - crunchier.

    Hi,

    I inherited a box Krusteaz honey cornbread mix from a friend who moved.

    This iss a simple add water-only to the mix, then stir until the ingredients were moistened and bake.

    Krusteaz is a company from the northwest who began business with a pie mix. Hence the company name was a variation of Crust-Ease.

    This cornbread could be considered corn cake, because the texture was very cake-like. There was a bit of unspent baking soda taste, which could be solved by using buttermilk instead of water.

    I did not especially like this cornbread, though my Dad thought it was the best I ever made.

    My early school years were spent in Maryland. Cornbread was a regularly available at our school cafeteria lunches. I have often thought Jiffy Mix pretty much replicated the experience.

    Yes, I am in the add sugar to cornbread grouping.

    Regards,

    Not sure why but felt like making cornbread tonight. Did NOT taste like cat food, pretty delicious in fact. Also made an Oklahoma onion burger, also delicious but the last for a while.

    Bride went to an event with the neighbor, wasn't too hungry so made a batch of cornbread. Warm from the oven with honey and flaky sea salt with an apple topped with same. Really hit a high note.

    Perfectly seasoned cast iron pan was Steve Z's, a gift from the Chowpoodle. Brought a smile of remembrance.

    Personally, I've never eaten cat food, so not sure if my corn bread tastes like it or not. But .... if cat food tastes like the corn breads I've made, then it is darn good tasting cat food.

    I have also inherited a LOT of corn meal and cornbread mix in the past 12 months.

    I have noticed that plain corn meal has a lot longer shelf life than do the cornbread mixes.

    Now that I always keep buttermilk in house, I am not buying any more of the mixes.
