This recipe comes from my mom, who got it from her childhood friend’s mother.  I believe it is supposed to taste like the cornbread at Marie Callendar’s restaurant, but my husband insists that it is much better. 🙂

Fabulous Cornbread

3 eggs, beaten
1 c. milk
1/2 c. melted butter
2 c. Bisquick (I’ve even been known to use homemade wheat pancake mix)
1/2 c. yellow cornmeal
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 t. baking powder

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 8×8 pan or regular loaf pan (the loaf pan will take longer to cook). Blend eggs, milk, and butter. Sift sugar and baking powder into separate bowl, then stir in the cornmeal and mix well. Add the cornmeal mixture and Bisquick to egg-milk mixture and stir with a wooden spoon only until blended. Pour batter into greased pan and bake 30-40 minutes.  Enjoy with a great soup or chili.
