Cornbread is such a versatile bread and goes with so many dishes. And there are so many different ways to make cornbread. You can make it in a skillet, square baking pan, round baking pan, 13x9-inch baking pan or make cornbread muffins, cornbread sticks and even cornbread cakes. This easy cornbread recipe has a secret ingredient that makes it super moist – and we bet you already have it in your refrigerator.
Mayonnaise! This moist cornbread recipe is made with Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix, mayonnaise, eggs, butter and either milk or buttermilk. The ingredients are mixed together, poured into a 13x9-inch baking pan and baked until golden and cooked through.
Milk or buttermilk will work for this cornbread, but if you want a slight twang, go with buttermilk. Don't use low-fat mayonnaise or Miracle Whip. The batter needs the fat from the mayo, and Miracle Whip would add a lot more sweetness to the cornbread.
