Here’s another example of a tasty, but fairly simple recipe – not a lot of ingredients, all mixed by hand in one bowl.  The can of corn adds some more texture and moisture.  If you have fresh corn, you can use that instead.  You’ll never go back to boxed cornbread after making this, I promise.  And, it goes well with chili, BBQ, soup and so many other things.

Double Corn Cornbread



Double Corn Cornbread
4.0 from 1 reviews
Serves: Makes 16 pieces
  • 1 cup stone-ground cornmeal
  • 1 cup flour
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 2½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk (see note below)
  • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 small can of corn, drained
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a 9-inch square baking pan. Stir dry ingredients together in a bowl. Then stir in buttermilk, butter and egg and mix gently. Add can of corn and mix.
  2. Pour batter in prepared pan, set on the middle rack of the oven, and bake for 25 minutes. Cornbread is done when edges are lightly browned and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  3. Cut into 16 squares to serve.
* Freezes well.
* I recommend using SACO Cultured Buttermilk Blend in place of fresh buttermilk. You’ll find it in the baking section of your grocery store. Follow directions on the container for use. It keeps for a few years refrigerated so you always have buttermilk on hand.
* Variations: bake in mini-muffin pans (makes about 3 dozen) for 10-11 minutes, bake in regular-sized muffin tins (makes 14 to 16) for 22-25 minutes or double recipe and bake in a 9×13 pan for 30-35 minutes.

    Have you tried this recipe in regular cupcake sized muffins? I’ve been asked to bring cornbread muffins to a chili party. open to suggestions. Thanks!

      Susie – You can absolutely make this in regular muffin tins. I would estimate the cooking time to be about 15 minutes and yield about 18 muffins. Here’s a very similar recipe that is made in mini-muffin tins which I prefer as it’s less of a commitment!

        Thanks so much, Nicole! I made these for a chili party last Saturday in regular sized muffin/cupcake pans. It made 15 muffins and everyone loved them.
