Baking updated

On Wednesday, I made a yummy bold chex mix.  After making the standard one last time, I knew that it wasn't the hit that I was looking for.  I went on the search on the internet and found something and surprisingly I had all the ingredients.  I found this recipe at three different sites so I decided that it would be the one to go with.  It doesn't taste great straight out of the oven but it tastes much better the next day after sitting in a sealed container so don't count it out if you don't like it on the first try.  I hope you try it and love it!

4 cup Wheat Chex
1 cup mini Ritz Bits
1 cup windowpane pretzels
1 cup round pretzels
1 cup mini garlic bagel chips or rye chips

1/4-1/2 cup white cheddar popcorn seasoning
1 1/2 teaspoons lawrys seasoning salt
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon MSG or Accent -OPTIONAL

Microwave uncovered on High 5 to 6 minutes, thoroughly stirring every 2 minutes.
Spread on paper towels to cool. Store in airtight container.
Important: Because microwaves cook differently, time is approximate.

I woke up extra early on Thursday to make everything else on the list.  I got the blueberry muffins made first.  Then the cornbread from scratch and carrot cake from the Duncan Hines Deluxe Kit with carrots and rasins.  After all that was done, I decided to make a loaf of applesauce spice bread.  I was done super early and we ate 6 muffins hot out of the oven.  I piled everything in containers and started washing all the dishes.  I got them all cleaned and ran the dishwasher :)

If you would like to try the cornbread, I combined at least three recipes off the internet and through trial and error to come up with the following based on the cornmeal that I had in the house.  I am almost done with the self rising bag of cornmeal so stay tuned to see another recipe when I start the bags of organic cornmeal that I got for $0.99 at the Bloom sale :)

Cornbread with self rising cornmeal

1 cup self-rising cornmeal
1 cup flour
½ cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup milk
¼ cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray or lightly grease a 9 inch round cake pan. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients until just moistened. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
