This is very tasty and turned out quite well. I made mine a little differently -- no can. I used the usual slow cooker quick bread method (separate dish covered with foil, placed on a trivet in the crock and then poured hot water around the dish). Bread turned out HUGE and moist, so we'll have quite a few servings.
It was dry and lacking flavor. :(<br/><br/>Not sure why there are so many great reviews...it was decent enough to eat, but nothing that would leave people wow-ed. If you need something quick, simple, and easy, however, it's recommended.
I used a bit of a different amount of ingredients, water instead of milk, an egg, no sugar,,, but,, I didn't know cornbread could be done at all in a slow cooker,, and this is a basic cornbread recipe,, so I tried it,, and yummmm!!! And a couple of reviewers were encouraging that I could do it by just greasing the crock. The doneness was measured by the edges turning brown and pulling back from the pot, and the fork test. The top stayed yellow. It had that wonderful bit of crustiness on the edges that is gotten in a greased cast iron pot, and I love that! Thanks very much, for sharing the recipe, and for the helpful reviews. I'm going to be making this often! And it's great in the summer cuz it didn't heat up the kitchen! :))
I have been using this site for a while but I felt the need to sign up in order to review this recipe. I am living in Japan and don't have an oven so you can imagine how happy I was when I found this recipe. I made the cornbread right in the crockpot which I sprayed with nonstick spray first. This recipe was great and even my girlfriend liked it, more than anything that I have made in my crockpot actually.
I had Homemade Baked Yellow Eyed Beans cooking yesterday and wanted some cornbread to go along with it. I used skim milk and a little less butter then called for. I put the batter in a long flat pyrex container and put crumpled up aluminum foil under it. Problem was that I think my pyrex doesn't get as hot as the metal can would so this didn't cook as quickly. It took about 4 hours. Now, the taste was so fabulous that it still earned 5 stars in my book. Next time, though, I'd plan for more time for it to cook!
This was a nice change from our standard rolls or biscuits that I usually serve with dinner. I served this with roasted chicken, stuffing, gravy and peas. The family loved it and my son requested and ate the leftovers for breakfast this morning; which I warmed in the microwave and buttered. Very easy to whip up and cooked quickly in the crockpot. I poured mixed ingredients directly into a greased crockpot and cooked on High for 2 1/2 hours. Thanks for posting!
it can out great. thank you for the recipe.
