When Is CornBread Not CornBread?

... Cornbread isn't really cornbread when you have 2 cups of wheat flour or bisquick to 2 tablespoons of cornmeal. I just don't understand it!

I was reading a blog that I follow when I have a moment, and it had a recipe for "Best Corn Bread". The ingredients included 2 cups of bisquick and 2 "heaping" tablespoons of corn meal. To me, that's a pan bread with a little corn meal thrown in.

I'll post a cornbread recipe shortly. A REAL cornbread recipe.

Sorry... had to vent!

I agree wholeheartedly! It's not cornbread unless it's cornmeal and some sugar. With maple syrup or honey drizzled on top, served hot and fresh...

Oh, now you went and made me hungry. ;-)

No No No! Cornbread is not suppose to be sweet. It isn't a dessert it is "filler" and a way to scrape all your veggies together so you don't miss any of them.
Now, here in the south, we eat sugar, honey or syrup on biscuits. But we don't usually mess up our cornbread but putting anything but butter on it. GRITS
