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!

I loved Baba and Ben loves cornbread. So, I will for sure be making this! Thanks Marie!
This cornbread was amazing! My husband told me to throw away all other cornbread recipes. The only problem I had was I had to bake it for 10-15 minutes longer than stated. I used an 8-inch square pan. The middle started to brown quite a bit, although it was still jiggly in the center.
I’m so glad to hear you like it! I’m going to have to pay attention next time I make these. I haven’t had a problem with the time before, so I’m curious as to what happened. Thanks for the feedback!
What can you substitute for the sugar? I want to put it in soup and don’t want it sweet but what a great idea to use Bisquick.
Don’t be fooled by the sugar. It is not a sweet bread. However, if you want it so be less sweet I would just decrease the sugar in half. Let me know how it turns out!
I made this recipe twice, the first time I found it too sweet, so the second time I halved the sugar and it was perfect. Oh! I also added some nutmeg.
I have already shared this recipe with my friends and they all love it! Thanks for sharing ‘Baba’ favorite Cornbread.
