When it comes to whipping up freshly baked muffins and quick breads, we love the convenience of a boxed mix. But we’re not crazy about the hydrogenated fats and preservatives that sometimes hide inside. So we came up with our own super-simple cornbread mix using ingredients you likely have on hand. Whisk together the dry ingredients today, and stash the mixture in the pantry for up to three months. Then bake a fresh batch on Thanksgiving (or any) morning.

How to Make It

Step 1

Whisk together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Store in a tightly sealed container in a cool, dry place for up to 3 months.

Step 2

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 400°F. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and whisk in milk, oil, and eggs until evenly combined. Pour batter into a lightly greased baking vessel and bake as directed below. Let cool slightly before serving.

Step 3
