Holiday Cornbread Recipe




About: Hey y'all! My name is Lydia and I want to share my passion for cooking/baking with everyone!

The holidays are right around the corner and cornbread is a must for a lot of families. There are lots of different ways to make it and you can always buy the pre-made box kind (hey I've done that for years and it was yummy). This cornbread is delicious with some honey and jam or as is with some milk. Believe it or not, growing up we were not raised on cornbread because both my parents came from Romania but I love adding American traditions to my holiday table. So if you want to make you own Holiday Cornbread that is ridiculously easy, then follow the step by step guide below or watch the video tutorial here:

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Butter (melted)
  • 2/3 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Cup Buttermilk
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 Cup Cornmeal
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • (if you need help converting the measurements)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray an 9-inch square baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Step 3: Stir Butter and Sugar

In a large bowl, stir together melted butter and sugar.

Step 4: Add Eggs and Buttermilk

Add the eggs and buttermilk. Stir until well combined.

Step 5: Add in Baking Soda and Salt

Add the baking soda and salt, mix well.

Step 6: Cornflour and Flour

Stir in the cornmeal and flour. Mix until few lumps remain.

Step 7: Bake

Pour batter into prepared baking dish. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes. A toothpick should come out nearly clean with a few moist crumbs clinging to it.

Step 8: Pull Cornbread Out of Oven

Allow your cornbread to cool. I cut the edges but you don't have to do this. Then go ahead a cut your cornbread into pieces.

Step 9: Enjoy!

Enjoy this holiday classic with honey and jam or as is with a nice tall glass of milk!

    Add some niblet or frozen corn kernels for flavor and texture, or adjust moisture and add creamed corn (less texture, more flavor).

    Cornbread does not have sugar as an ingredient, adding sugar and making it sweet turns it into New England johnnycake.

    I have and I find that adding sugar makes it a cake, pardon my Southern cooking bias.

    No, the oven mitts will definitely affect the flavor of the cornbread. You really need the cornmeal and the flour.
