Don’t get me wrong…I love Jiffy Cornbread Mix just as much as the next person. I, however, do not like the extra preservatives included in each blue box. So, I decided to experiment and make my own cornbread from scratch. I amazingly had all the ingredients I needed, so I threw these together easily and quickly.
They turned out great! If it tells you anything, my husband called them cornbread brownies because they were so sweet and delicious 🙂
