Cornbread is a classic American dish that is mostly enjoyed around the holidays but really brightens up any table. It is light, fluffy, and works so well with a variety of meals. It is also really simple to make and doesn’t require much preparation beforehand, so you can make it in a snap and bring it to a dinner, or just enjoy it with any weeknight meal.


For this cornbread, you will need:
1 cup of both cornmeal and all-purpose flour
2/3 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
3 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 egg
1 cup of milk
1/3 cup of neutral oil


  1. In a large bowl, stir in all the dry ingredients and mix well to combine.
  2. Then, pour in all of the wet ingredients, which are the egg, milk, and oil, and mix until a batter comes out.
  3. Grease a pan or a baking dish and then pour in the mixture.
  4. Bake at 400 F for 20-25 minutes. The cornbread will be done when you stick a toothpick into the center and it comes out clean.
  5. Cut the cornbread into squares and serve with three bean chili, making a stuffing, or serving at a cook out or with a big plate of BBQ.
