Step 5: Turn up the heat

About 20-25 minutes at 425 degrees F. A better way to judge is to wait till the top is a nice gold en brown and then stick a butter knife in the middle. if the knife comes out clean is good to go, if it has wet batter on it still cook it longer.
<p>marymcknatt, she did tell you how much milk, you put the milk in last, aliite at a time until the consistency is right. What else do you want to know. That's the I always add milk. Either that or if you use a mix like Martha White, I measure the wet ingredients and then add the mix until the consistency is right. Not rocket science!</p>
<p>Young people lack rocket science... Too funny... </p>
Cooking is an art form not rocket science. However there is recipe here on instrutables that is for rocket fuel that you sort of cook in electric skillet.
Don't you just love recipes like this that do not even tell you how much milk to use? How are young people supposed to love cooking when the instructions are so incomplete? You know what - we are not clairvoyant!!!! So tonight, I will just stick with my recipe and I bet it tastes a lot better! <br> <br>
<p>Cooking is an art, not a science. If you always add the same amount of liquid each time, sometimes you will get tough, dense cornbread, sometimes light and fluffy. it all depends on your oven, the humidity, the house temperature. Cooking is meant to be experienced, not regimented.</p>
<p>I think the recipe is pretty clear on the amount of milk. You can't give a measurement for a recipe like this because it will vary every time. It is like adding bread to flour. The more you do it, the better you get at knowing how much is enough. Cooking is best when it isn't regimented. Sometimes you try and fail. It's how you learn. If you're going to cook with your nose in the recipe, then just buy frozen meals. No trial and error involved. :)</p>
Hmm. Apparently there are plenty of people who can figure out how this pancake batter is even if you have difficulty with this task. If you add milk to an exact amount the Cornbread tends to come out like playdoh. If that's the kind of Cornbread you like more power to you. Personally I want my corn bread to resemble sponge cake. Good luck with your stiff regimented cooking style. I really do wish you the best.
We have tried making cornbread on many occasions and we have always been met with disappointment...not this time. perfect amount of sweetness and the texture was spot on. Thanks very much for sharing.
Looks like a good one. I'll save this recipe, thanks!
Using a non-aluminum baking powder might help out on the &quot;metallic-tasting&quot; bit. Rumford is good, so is Argo.
I second the use of Rumford. Always use a fresh can, and go for Rumford.
i made it and it taste so good <br>i added tons of sugar (:
Thanks for sharing...looks great!
