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

2hrs 10mins
2 pound loaf




  • Add enough water to the beaten egg to equal 1 1/3 cups.

  • 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.
