Cornbread is always a favorite among the Mr. Food family members and this Hot Water Cornbread will be a favorite of yours, too!

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups white cornmeal
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3/4 to 1-1/4 cups boiling water (see note)
  • Vegetable oil
  • Softened butter

What to Do

  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl; stir in half-and-half and 1 tablespoon oil. Gradually add boiling water, stirring until batter is the consistency of oatmeal.
     
  2. Pour oil into a large heavy skillet to a depth of 1/2-inch; place over medium-high heat. Scoop batter into a 1/4-cup measure; drop into hot oil, and fry in batches 3 minutes on each side or until golden. Drain on paper towels. Serve with softened butter.

Notes

The amount of boiling water needed varies depending on the type of cornmeal used. Stone-ground (coarsely ground) cornmeal requires more liquid.

Peanut Butter & Banana French Toast Bake

This recipe was inspired by Elvis, who had a love for all things peanut butter, bananas, and bacon! We may not be able to perform rock 'n' roll like our good friend, Terry Buchwald, but our Peanut Butter Banana French Toast Bake is our way of paying tribute to the King.
