There are a few basic recipes you should keep in your arsenal all year long. For me, that would be How to Make Perfect Brown Rice, Oatmeal in the Crock Pot, Smoothie Your Way and this Basic Cornbread. It’s a really easy recipe to prepare, turns out perfect every single time and my kids adore a big chunk. It’s a must for every occasion including summer time picnics, cool fall nights with big bowls of Lentil Veggie Stew and especially during Thanksgiving when you’ll want to prepare Cornbread Cranberry Stuffing. This is a holiday stuffing recipe that I’ve been making for years during the holidays after enjoying my grandmother’s version as a kid wouldn’t be possible without a Basic Cornbread as the base.

This is one of those times you want to use the best quality ingredients possible as cornbread is all about the cornmeal you use to make it. You want it to turn out just golden on top when it comes out of the oven, tender inside and leaving your kitchen smelling of toasty fresh corn.

You can add it to stuffing or even serve it with pats of butter or scoops of fresh preserves. After you bake it, though, make sure to hide it out of view as if your kids are like mine they will try to steal pieces of it before your eyes!

    Try replacing half the flour for masa harina…. You will not be disappointed :). Also, to make less processed try subbing the other half cup flour for whole wheat and subbing honey for the sugar .. Still super yummy

    In the recipe of the corn bread it says dairy free. I’m confused about this because when the ingredients are listed, milk is included. Can this please be clarified. Thanks in advance.

      It can be made with any milk or milk alternative! :)

    Hi Catherine! I recently had to go gluten free and it has turned my cooking life upside down!! Do you have good replacement gluten free flour that won’t ruin the recipe?

      I haven’t tested it in this recipe specifically, but I always use Cup 4 Cup and King Arthur gluten-free blend!

    Hi,
    We love cornbread! Any suggestions for a flour alternative to make this gluten free?

    Can you make this into a corn muffin recipe? How many standard muffins would you expect this to make?

    • C. McCord

      It would make about 12 standard size muffins. Just pour the mixture into greased muffin tin and reduce baking time to about 15-20 minutes!
