Martha White Mexican Style Cornbread & Muffin Mix
On a scale of 1 - 10 I rate this product a 10+
For years I've enjoyed the cabbage and Mexican cornbread that was served by K & W Cafeteria near my home. Well, they closed! I would order the same thing every time, so much so that the line lady didn't even ask what I wanted. I would always order 'Mexican cornbread on a plate, topped with a double order of cabbage and juice spooned over the bread until it was soggy.' This was my normal, delicious order. I had no idea where I would, nor if I would, ever find my favorite dish with them no longer there.
I've tried several recipes for Mexican cornbread and never seemed to find the right taste. I don't normally use mixes so when I spotted the Martha White Mexican Style Cornbread. After checking the ingredients I found it had no sugar, I don't like sweet cornbread, so I decided I would give it a try. What did I have to lose. The directions were simple - 2/3 cup milk (I used buttermilk) and 1 egg. And the calorie count was only 130 calories per serving (don't know what the buttermilk added) but since I was only eating the cornbread and cabbage it couldn't be too bad for me.
I have to tell you right off. This mix is delicious! The buttermilk gave it a flavor that was even better than K & W's. One of the ingredients was jalapeno peppers giving it just the perfect heat. It didn't have the whole corn but that was ok since there wasn't that much in K & W's so it wasn't missed. And the price is around $1.00 for the package! This has now taken the place of my K & W Mexican cornbread that I can now make anytime I want and enjoy.
