This is an old recipe for a slightly sweet corn bread. It can easily be doubled and baked in a 9x13 pan. We substitute applesauce for the shortening for a healthier treat.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream shortening and sugar together and drop in egg; cream well.
  2. Silf flour, baking powder, and salt together and mix into corn meal.
  3. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, alternately with the warm milk.
  4. Bake in greased 8x8 pan 25 minutes at 375 degrees.

My husband and son LOVE cornbread. I've been looking for a good cornbread recipe for a while now...this wasn't too "cake"y but not to coarse either - a good balance, fluffy but still taste like CORNbread. Thank you!

I just made this for my parents and we all loved it, we didn't even have to add butter. I made it as cupcakes and they turned out beautiful. Thanks!
