Just ran out of milk, making cornbread and have half/half, heavy cream and water... What's best way to finish the amount off?

Need 1 and 1/3 cups and only have 2/3 cup milk

What kind of milk do you have, and is the recipe calling for whole?

It's a simple 'box' recipe, just calls for milk. We have non fat

I might use exclusively half and half (skip the nonfat milk) since it is similar to whole fat milk. The result will be richer and likely wonderful.

I agree with Ali. I have used half & half, and it was just fine.
When you cut a piece afterwards and butter it, you may not need as much butter. :)
Nah. Just kidding about the butter...
