Ingredients In Cornbread

The main ingredients in cornbread are butter, sugar, eggs, flour, cornmeal, creamed corn, baking soda and salt. I added green chilies and cheese to mine which makes it amazing too!

How To Make Cornbread

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl or stand mixer until well combined. Slowly add eggs until well combined. Pour in remaining ingredients in no particular order, stir until just combined. Pour into a 9×13 inch baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean from center. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro if desired. Cut into squares and serve warm or room temperature.

You can find cornmeal in the baking section of your grocery store or near the breadcrumbs.

What Is Cornmeal?

Cornmeal is made of ground yellow corn ranging in texture from fine to coarse grounds.

How Do You Serve Cornbread?

Cornbread can be served by itself with a little pad of butter on top. It’s fantastic!

A popular way to serve cornbread is along side chili. Chili and cornbread are the perfect pair. I like to put a small square of cornbread into a bowl and top with chili. It’s really good served this way.
