The Cooking Channel: How to make a Cornbread Bowl (Video)

Does your family love cornbread or bread with their meal? My husband loves bread! Love is actually an understatement.
how to make a cornbread bowl

 

 

 

A few weeks ago I came up with an idea to use my vintage pyrex to create cornbread bowls. Usually, I’ll find bread at the grocery store and make bread bowls when we’re having any kind of soup or chili. However, this time I came up with this idea and wasn’t sure how it was going to work at first, but it was a success.

Spice up that Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix

We grew up on this stuff and with the hustle and bustle of life, there are times you need some help in the kitchen.

I don’t favor many boxed foods and have recently streamed down can goods to fresh produce mostly.  However, there are days you’d like to get in the kitchen and get out. 

We’re experiencing another Polar Vortex and tomorrow will be day two of school cancelled due to weather.  Making some soup for the soul was a necessity ( recipe post coming).  Made some more Chicken & Acorn Squash Soup and had to please my meat and potatoes man. So, I whipped up a batch of cornbread.  You know I love throwing a twist on my meals.

Directions
2 boxes of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix + 2 eggs + 1 can enchilada sauce mixed well.

Oil skillet with olive oil and place in oven to heat up a bit. Pour in batter and place in oven until done.

This cornbread didn’t stand a chance!

Moist, slight spicy kick and absolutely delicious!

Do you make any out of the box items that you add your own special touch too?

Apple Muffins Recipe

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cooking tools needed: Blender, measuring cup, measuring spoons,3 large mixing spoons,2 to 3 large mixing bowls, 2 8×4 loaf pans or 1 8×4 loaf pan and a standard muffin pan(for the kids) & cooking spray.

 

 

Preparation: preheat on 325 degrees

Tip***bread loaf 45 minutes to 1 hour or until done. Muffins cook quicker than your bread loaf due to the depth of the pan so check on them in 15 to 20 and cook additional time if needed.***

Dry ingredients:
2 cups white sugar
3 cups flour
3 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
Wet ingredients:3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups/1 can of apple pie filling

2 tsp vanilla extract

Preparation:
1. Pour all dry ingredients in a bowl.

2. In another bowl pour in all your wet ingredients.
3. Begin to add you dry ingredients into your wet ingredient slowly while stirring ingredients. (you can use a hand mixer but I’ve been using a spoon to mix. Which ever you prefer. Also, if you want large chunks of apple or smaller, use a potato smasher to control the size of your apples.)
4. Mix all ingredients thoroughly.
5. Spray your pans/muffin pans with your non sticking cooking spray.
6. Pour into cooking pans/muffin.
7. Place in oven and cook bread loaf 45 minutes to 1 hour or until done. Muffins cook quicker than your bread loaf due to the depth of the pan so check on them in 15 to 20 and cook additional time if needed.

Mama Tip: use a fork or skewers to poke in muffins & bread to check if they’re fully cooked. If, fork or skewer come out clean after poking, bread is DONE. If it comes out wet, continue cooking.

Cupcake Cuties Kit Review

She’s a Cutie

I was given the opportunity to review a Cupcake Cuties Kit.  The name says it all!  She’s truly a cutie.  Excuse me for calling the cupcake a she but something this cute, has to have her own personality.  Not only is she adorable but she’s easy to dress up in all of her accessories.  The Cupcake Cuties Kit comes with everything you need to adorn a cupcake.  All you will have to supply is the cupcake and frosting.  As you look at my video below, you’ll notice I used a muffins.  There’s a good explanation for my madness.  My Mom was over for the Christmas holiday and I made her a dozen pumpkin muffins to take home with her.  So, you know I had to make some for us as well.  And my kids seem to like frosting on their muffins. 

Let me tell you more about these cuties. 

  • The Cupcake Cuties Kit comes in OVER 30 different design themes. Which makes them perfect for any party! You can have them as desserts for your Play Off Game or instead of having you cupcakes complete at you child’s party, you can allow the children to decorate them as an activity.
  • The Kit comes with 24 cupcake sleeves & the toppings to complete the design kit you’ve chosen.

My 3yr old had a ball helping me dress them up.  Check out our video below.

Disclosure: I was given the Cupcake Cuties Kit to review and this is my honest opinion
