Stock up your pantry or make for gifts, either way this Homemade Cornbread Mix Recipe is one of the best! Plus free printable labels too!
Sundays at my house are known for a few things. We do PJ's, we do movies, and we do comfort food. Sometimes we grill, sometimes something is brewing in the crockpot, but no matter what it is, we enjoy it as a family. Today's something was a cast iron skillet with some fresh cornbread thanks to this Homemade Cornbread Mix.
This is super simple to make! It is just whisking together the dry ingredients in bulk and filling your jars. My kids LOVE LOVE LOVE to measure and put together mixes like this for me to help in the kitchen! It is a super project for them to get busy in the kitchen.
Assembling Cornbread Mix Jars
Once it is mixed I put it in Quart Sized wide mouth jars or into quart sized Ziploc bags. Either way, it keeps perfectly. The jars are amazing to give as gifts with a cast iron skillet and a cute dish towel. Who wouldn't love that?!
The Labels on these jars are available for you to print for free below. I just printed them right on some adhesive label paper. The directions to make the cornbread are right on them and oh so cute!
I fit enough mix for 2 batches of cornbread in each quart jar. Since this recipe makes enough for 4 batches of cornbread you will get enough mix for 2 jars out of this recipe. Feel free to double or even triple it because everyone will want to take a jar home!
