Quick Cornbread With Dinner

The other night, my family and I had soup for supper, and I was wondering what else to make with it. I was thinking of blueberry muffins, but that didn't sound right. I decided on cornbread, and that was the right choice. Cornbread went well with the bean and vegetable soup that my mom and I made. It didn't take long for me to mix up the cornbread and bake it. It tasted great.

I added flaxseed to the instructions, not the ingredients because it is optional. The recipe doesn't call for it, but since I love it, I added some to the cornmeal, and it was great. You can't even tell that it is in the mixture. So you can add some to anything that you eat.
