Quick Cornbread With Dinner

The other night, my family and I had soup for supper. I wondered what else to make with the soup. I decided on cornbread. Cornbread always goes well with vegetable soup. Using my favorite cornbread recipe, I had cornbread ready to go in 20 minutes.

Below is my recipe! Note that the flax seeds are optional. Personally, I love them, and you can't even tell that they're in the bread.
