Corn Bread

I love cornbread.  It is a go to side dish at our house, and definitely isn't new here on the blog.  
However, I have three recipes, and two have been posted here before.  I thought it was time to consolidate, and explain my reasonings.

The first recipe (Creamed Corn Bread) is best.  It is moist, has great flavor and texture, makes for a better leftover, and overall we like it the most.

The second version (Corn Bread) I did away with completely until I found myself reverting back to it for certain recipes.  For example, I prefer it if the cornbread is paired with something else (like in this cornbread taco bake recipe), as opposed to being eaten alone.  It also works perfectly for any recipe that calls for a boxed corn bread muffin mix; (just omit the liquid ingredients and you've got the same thing).  If you don't have creamed corn to make the first version, this is the next best thing. 

The third version (Dry Corn Bread Mix) is excellent for camping/vacations.  You can toss everything in a bag and just add water when ready to bake.
