This recipe was in a book that came with my Black and Decker bread machine. This is not traditional cornbread, but is tasty anyway.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add enough water to the beaten egg to equal 1 1/3 cups.
  2. Follow directions for your bread machine.
  3. My machine instructs to measure ingredients in the order listed into the baking pan. (I heat the water/egg mixture in the microwave for about 30 seconds before putting in pan.).
  4. Insert baking pan into oven chamber and secure pan.
  5. Select rapid setting and 2 pound loaf.
  6. When cycle ends, I put the loaf in a large zip lock bag, seal the bag, and plae on a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

I made this to serve with chili. I used the regular light crust cycle rather than the rapid cycle, because I don't trust the rapid cycle on my machine. I don't put it in a bag, because that steams the bread and makes it wet and mushy. Instead, I brush the crust with a little melted butter. In spite of these deviations, this is a very good bread recipe. It is nothing like a traditional cornbread, but rather a light wheat bread flavored with cornmeal. I would very definitely make this again. Made for Bargain Basement Tag.

I also made this to serve with chili. I used the rapid cycle on my machine and the bread turned out great. I just let it cool on a rack for 20 minutes before cutting. I will make this bread again.

If you want to make a hearty, tasty homemade bread for a dinner party the same day, this recipe will work well! However, if you're as slow to eat a loaf of bread as my family, the cornmeal will show its disadvantage as soon as the bread isn't fresh: it sucks the moisture out of the bread and makes it go stale faster than the basic ABM bread recipe.
