Heavenly Cornbread

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by breezermom

This is Southern cornbread, not a sweet cornbread. White cornmeal is essential. Make sure you cut the egg into the cornmeal with a fork...not a mixer or whisk. To make this cornbread heavenly, you are looking for a nice pourable batter, similar to pancake batter. This is best made in a seasoned cast iron skillet.

Very nice cornbread. So easy to make too. Made it to accompany "Recipe #495413" and it was just wonderful. This bread is good too toasted in the morning with a slather of butter over the top. Found that the white cornflour made it light and airy. I grew up on Portuguese cornbread which is normally made with white cornflour. Though it is quite different from what I grew up on, I found this recipe to be airier and delightful. Thank you breezermom for sharing.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Three minutes before you are ready to put the cornbread in the oven, put the oil and corn in the skillet and place in the oven. (Do not do this if you don't have a pre-seasoned cast iron skillet). Heat until nice and hot.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs with a whisk. Add the flour, cornmeal, sugar, buttermilk, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Blend with a fork, using a cutting motion.
  4. Add to the skillet, and mix thoroughly. Bake for 35 minutes.
