Easy Pumpkin Cornbread in a Crockpot

"This recipe uses Jiffy mix, canned pumpkin and a little cinnamon. You might tweak it as you like. I'm experimenting with my 1.5 quart slow cooker. The cooking time is approximate, and during the last 1/2 hour I did take the lid off and let the steam out a couple of times so it would bake a bit better, otherwise it is soooo moist that it is heavy. You can let me know if you remove the lid or not and how moist or dry yours turns out. I added some raisins too. The sides come out a bit crusty, which I like. I lined the bottom of the crock with parchment paper and then greased it with the crock so the cornbread will slide out better. It really doesn't get any easier than this."

Ready In:
2hrs 45mins




  • Line the bottom of a 1.5 quart crock with parchment paper.
  • Grease the crock & paper with the butter or margarine.
  • Put cornbread mix into a bowl and add the cinnamon.
  • Break egg into another bowl and add the water to that and then stir it a bit to break the yolk.
  • Put the 1/3 can of pumpkin on top of the cornbread mix and then add the egg and water. Combine. Mixture will be a little lumpy.
  • Pour the mixture into the crock and turn the slow cooker onto high.
  • Let it bake for 2 hours and then lift the lid to test with a toothpick. It probably won't be done so set the timer for another half hour and lift the lid and check again. It should be near done or done. If not give it another 15 minutes or so. The top will not turn brown, but the sides will.
  • To remove from the crock, slide a knife around the sides and then turn the crock upside-down over a plate. It should slide out, and then turn it over on another plate and serve the cute little round thing.
  • Makes 4 muffin sized servings.
  • Enjoy!

I minored in anthropology in college, and food is part of a culture,, so I'm interested in various ethnic foods. I'm on a restricted diet, however, and I'm not a great chef,, so I look for simple dishes without milk products, too much hot spices, grease, and now I've been diagnosed diabetic too! Quite a challenge sometimes to work out a menu for myself, within my budget too! So I've come here to see if I can find, and share, interesting foods and menues. I am more familiar with American cowcountry foods, some Polish foods, Caribbean cuisine. Asian food is low sugar and no dairy, though there are exceptions. I've had the privilege to sample foods from Kenya, Korea, Ethiopia, Soul food. I want to taste the world! My family has had, at one time, enough land to have a large garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, rabbits, and a couple of Bantam chickens. I don't have that at the moment, but I do grow some herbs in pots inside. Fresh herbs are not only tastier but cheaper than dried.
