Delicious Cornbread!

I used to only make cornbread from those little Jiffy mix boxes. I had tried a few cornbread recipes, but none were much better than the box. UNTIL... I stumbled upon this recipe! It's got the corn flavor, it's just the right amount of sweet, it's easy to make, and it's just delicious!

Recipe adapted from here.

1/2 c cornmeal
1 1/2 c flour
2/3 c sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 c canola oil (or vegetable oil)
3 tbsp butter, melted
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/4 c milk

1. Lightly grease an 8" square pan and preheat the oven to 350.
2. Mix dry ingredients well in a large bowl.
3. Add in the wet ingredients and stir until just mixed. Batter will be runny - don't worry!
4. Pour the batter into the pan, and bake for 35 minutes.
5. Serve warm with butter!

Dry ingredients

Wet ingredients added!


Into the oven it goes...




  1. Yum! I'm going to have to try this sometime soon. We love a good cornbread around here and I've always done the boxes too but this is worth a shot.

  2. MMM I used to do the boxes as well but just gave this one a try!
