My mom would make hot water corn bread in a pinch when she wanted a certain taste to go with something. Hot water cornbread is a quick bread that you can throw together in no time to complete your meal. The recipe is very individualized – some people just use self-rising cornmeal and water but I add my own ingredients individually – dyo self-rising flour!
