Recipe: Gift In A Jar: Corn Bread in a Bag

For the next week, I will provide a recipe every day that I like from the Mary Hunt's book, Debt-Proof the Holidays. I am hoping that these give you some ideas for homemade gift-giving this Holiday season!

Corn Bread in a Bag

1 C yellow corn meal
1 C flour
1/4 C white sugar (optional)
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Stir together all ingredients and transfer to a plastic bag. 

Attach this to jar:

Preheat oven to 425.  Empty contents of bag in a bowl.  Add 1 egg, 1 cup milk and 4 tablespoons shortening.  Beat until smooth (about 1 minute with whisk.)  Pour batter into a greased 8x8 inch baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until a knife inserted at the center comes out clean.


  1. I haven't read that book yet. Sounds like a great read though!

    I am really enjoying taking a look around your blog...good stuff here.


  2. Thank you! :-) So glad you're here!
