This post is dedicated to Baba. Who is Baba, you ask? He is only one of the greatest grandpas to walk the face of the Earth. I’m the oldest grandchild on my mom’s side of the family. When I was tiny and learning to talk, I couldn’t say “Grandpa”. It came out Ba-ba. My grandpa’s real name was Earl. He never liked being called that, so when I inadvertently gave him a new name, he jumped all over it. He even started introducing himself as “Bob” to people he met. He passed away just under 10 years ago. I’ve been thinking of him a lot lately and wish my kids could have met him. I decided to start sharing some of his favorite things with them. This recipe was one of the first that came to mind. I made this today along with our family’s Marshmallow Creme Honey Butter. (Stay tuned for that next week!) The cornbread was moist, and sweet. My kiddos gobbled it up!
Baba’s Favorite Cornbread
2 c. Bisquick
1 c. sugar
4-6 T. cornmeal
1 c. milk
1/2 c. unsalted butter (melted)
*For high altitudes, add 2 T. flour to the Bisquick
Grease and flour an 8 inch square pan. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350. Combine all ingredients and stir until well blended. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 30 -40 minutes until the top has a nice golden color. Goes great with Marshmallow Creme Honey Butter!
