I see no reason to make regular cornbread ever again--not when I can have this. The house smells heavenly, and this goes great with my chili. Recipe courtesy of The Best of Country Cooking 2010 and Judy Roland of Mount Holly, North Carolina.


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the eggs, milk, oil, and sweet potatoes.
  3. Stir in the dry ingredients just until moistened.
  4. Pour into a greased 13x9x2" baking pan.
  5. Bake at 425 for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
  6. Cut into squares.
  7. Serve warm.

Easy enough to make and tasty. I couldn't get any cornmeal in my local bakery supplies store so I steamed a whole cob of corn and stripped off the kernels to pour in. I used a pressure cooker to steam the sweet potato together with the corn and peeled off the skin before mashing it. It was a little bland on its own at first so I powdered the surface with some anise and fennel and it was 'lifted' very nicely.
