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.
