Is the mix supposed to be so thick? Is 2/3 cup of milk the right amount?
    Becky Hardin
    Hey Judy, yes it is supposed to be pretty thick, it was for us. Hope you love the recipe!
Linda

    Becky Hardin
    Hi Linda! We used a store-bought cornbread mix (Jiffy or Fleishmanns works well), hope you love the recipe!
Denise Chelpka
I really like my homemade cornbread recipe. How could this be adapted to not use a mix? These look SO good!

Can you translate it into metric? I have no idea what this all means.
Anna
Do you think I can bake this in a 13x9 pan and cut into squares instead of biscuits?
    Becky Hardin
    This recipe is best this way, but I know there are so many recipes out there similar for traditional cornbread. I also love it that way. Hope you find one that is perfect!! Merry Christmas :)
