  • Homemade Cornbread

    I cooked a big pot of chili yesterday (yummy) and wanted cornbread to go with it. I didn't have a mix (I usually use Marie Callender's) and didn't want to drive to the store, so I looked online for a recipe. Both Ralph and I thought this was better than the mix (as he put it). Not quite a cake-like as MC, but still really soft and kind of sweet. This is my first attempt at making cornbread from scratch. Recipe was deemed a keeper.


    (Makes 9" x 13" pan, so I cut the recipe in half and used a 9" square pan)

    Preheat oven to 350

    1 c. butter, softened
    1 1/3 c. granulated sugar
    4 eggs
    2 c. buttermilk
    1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. baking soda
    1 1/4 c. yellow cornmeal
    2 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
    1 tsp. salt

    In mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar til smooth; add eggs and buttermilk.

    In another bowl, combine all dry ingredients, stirring to mix them well.

    Pour dry mixture into wet mixture and stir well. Pour into greased 9" x 13" pan. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until it tests done.

    (My note: I used buttermilk substitute of 1 Tbsp. vinegar to a scant 1 c. of 2% milk because it's all I had. I will use real buttermilk next time. Mine in a 9" square pan took 30 minutes to bake)

    Thanks, Judy. I always use a mix, too, and want to venture out in my cornbread. Will try this for sure.
