Not going to lie. I asked Mom for her recipe a while back and she said "just use the one off the cornmeal bag". That from a Texas woman who has been cooking for around 70 years. So here it is.

My wife likes the Jiffy mix, but I like it plain, don't like it sweet. This is the one off the Aunt Jemima bag, have been using it for while minus the sugar and plus tsp or two of black pepper.

Have messed around with adding chili's, cheese, corn, etc before. Personally think a plain good cornbread is hard to beat. Your flavor should be in what you dump on it.

1 cup flower
1 cup cornmeal
tsp salt
4tsp baking powder
1 egg
1/4 cup oil
1 cup milk

Heat some oil, bacon grease, whatever in your iron skillet tils about to smoke. Dump in the mix and then 425 for 18-20 min.

Just curios if somebody has a better hand me down type recipe.

Looks great! I like my cornbread a little moister than most folks, so add some butter plus hatch green chiles. I do use Jiffy brand as well.

That's Yankee cornbread. Use half as much flour as you use meal. Always add sugar. Never put your oil in the mix. Put it in a hot pan the way you did. I never use a mix.

Agree with Mr. Oxner on the flour to meal ratio. I like a courser texture, but no sugar.

I'll start with dropping the flour back and increasing the cornmeal. I don't use buttermilk a whole lot, just don't keep it in the fridge. Red onion is good, but man I'd be up at midnight looking for the alka seltzer.

I like my cornbread with a less coarse texture. I use 2/3 cup cornmeal and 1 1/3 cup flour (tried 1/2 cup cornmeal and 1 1/2 cup flour- not my favorite), 1 TBSP white sugar, one egg, 3 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt, and no oil except to coat the skillet before placing batter. Get skillet hot before adding batter. Then as soon as removed from oven, rub butter all over the top and add some more after first coat melts.

Guess I grewup with more cornmeal in our cornbread than most here.

For an 8 inch cast iron skillet

1 1/2 cups self rising corn meal
1/2 cup self rising flour
2 eggs
1/4[spoiler][/spoiler] cup oil
enough butter milk or regular milk to make batter what you want for stiffness.

Heat iron skillet
Melt in Table spoon butter in hot skillet then add batter and cook at 375 until done.

Optional add a few chopped jalapenoes

To make hush puppies make the same but add black pepper, chopped jalapenoes and chopped onion. Drop in hot oil and fry until done. Will make for a light fluffy hushpuppy
