Sissy's Can't Wait for Dinner Cornbread

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by That Napa Chicken R

I've tried a lot of cornbread recipes but this one works the best (I use my mom's old aluminum pan so the crust is lightly brown but the bread nice and moist- don't overcook!) Toast the leftovers for breakfast with butter and jam.

Wonderful, moist, delicious! I substituted 1/4 c applesauce for the sugar and used coarse meal/polenta grits for added texture. I could have eaten the entire pan!

Ingredients Nutrition

  3. In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat egg with milk and butter. Add to dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.
  5. Bake in prepared pan* 20 minutes or until cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.
  6. *You can either take a paper towel and rub butter all over the inside of the pan to coat or use PAM- but butter works best!
