Good Eats Creamed Corn Cornbread (Alton Brown)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by 2Bleu

This recipe produces a very light and airy cornbread packed with flavor. We add about 1/3 cup of sugar because we love sweet cornbread. :)

Glad I tried the recipe but I think I like it better without the corn and a little sweeter. Thanks for posting.

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F Place a 10-inch cast iron skillet into the oven.
  2. In a bowl, combine the cornmeal, salt, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Whisk together to combine well.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the buttermilk, eggs, and creamed corn, whisking together to combine thoroughly.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the buttermilk mixture and stir to combine. If the batter will not pour, add more buttermilk to the batter.
