Secret Recipes of Restaurants

I’m going to give you a recipe that was given to me. It is a secret recipe of a restaurant. So don’t give it to anyone else, okay? I had been looking for a great cornbread recipe and this is the one I always use. The others I tried came out with a weird consistency or tasted strange. Like most people who bake or cook for a living, I try several recipes for one dish. Sometimes I get the right one for my palate and sometimes I don’t. Here’s the recipe as promised:

Marie Callender’s Famous Golden Cornbread

1½ cups all-purpose flour ¾ teaspoon salt

¾ cup cornmeal 1 ¼ cups whole milk

2 teaspoons ¼ cup shortening

1/3 cup sugar 1 egg


Honey Butter

½ cup (1 stick) butter 1/3 cup honey softened


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F

Combine the four, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl.

Add the milk, shortening, and egg and mix only until all the ingredients are well combined.

Pour the batter into a greased 8 X 8 inch pan.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

Let the cornbread cool slightly before slicing it with a sharp knife into 9 pieces.

For the honey butter, use a mixer on high speed to whip the butter and honey together until smooth and fluffy.

You can’t get this type of recipe anywhere.

I lucked out and someone gave this to me. I wanted to get some more of these type of recipes. Obviously, when it’s been used in a restaurant the chances are that it’s been piloted and tried many times. All the experimentation that you might have to do yourself has been taken out of the equation.

I have to cook every day. I might as well get the best recipes. On top of that, cooking your own food cuts down on the amount spent on trips to a restaurant. Also, there’s a lot to be said about controlling the ingredients. You can cut down on fat and sugar. You have a say on what exactly goes into your mouth.

I have recently been able to find a source for these secret recipes of restaurants. I want you to get some for free.
