READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by A Messy Cook

This cornbread is a favorite in our house. It has great flavor and texture, and it's not too bad for you either! :-) Serve wedges of piping hot bread with chili, soup, scrambled eggs...

Top Review by Chef Towanda

This cornbread was great! So delicious. I've never cared much for cornbread that wasn't full of sugar and that wasn't really soft and moist on the inside. But this is one of the best I've ever tasted and it was so easy to make! I think next time, I will add more wheat germ and a bit of flax seed as well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stir dry ingredients together.
  2. Make a well, add remaining ingredients, and stir just until moistened.
  3. Pour into sprayed 9 inch pie plate and bake 25 minutes at 400 degrees; cool on rack 15 minutes, invert bread onto rack, and cut into wedges.
  4. Edited to say: I have been making this with 1/2 cup of unbleached flour and 1/2 cup of wheat germ (increasing the wheat germ), and it is just as delicious -- so try it the healthier way if you are so inclined!
