Baking Tip

Take chilled items, like butter, eggs, and cream cheese, out of the refrigerator at least a couple of hours before use, so they're at room temperature.

Baking Tip

To quickly bring eggs to room temperature, dip them in a bowl of warm water. Cut butter into small chunks and let stand at room temperature 15 minutes to soften.

White Lily Southern Cornbread is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great flavor, texture is iffy. I am testing cornbread recipes. I bought White Lily Self-Rising Buttermilk Cornbread mix today. The taste is wonderful, but it is very crumbly, has holes in the cake too. The bag recipe calls for either 1/4 Crisco oil OR 1/4 cup melted Crisco shortening. The recipe here on the website does not say OR.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from After many years of searching for a cornbread the husband and I could agree on this is it. The only problem is it turns out dry and crumbly. Any suggestions?
