Punched-up Corn Bread

Episode 3: Punched-up Corn Bread
It’s a great side for barbeque and chili, among others– or just as a treat by itself. Yes, I know you can make it from scratch– but the pre-mixed stuff isn’t too shabby– especially when you punch it up a couple of different ways.
Recipe 1: Peached-up Corn Bread
1 Box Instant corn bread mix
1 Egg, beatened
1 6-8 oz container Peach Yogurt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add box contents into a mixing bowl. Mix in the egg and the yogurt. Pour contents into a greased 9×9 baking dish. Bake for 20-21 minutes.

1/3 milk
