Sweet Cornbread

Easy Recipes: Sweet Cornbread

As attested by my recent kitchen debacles, I’m not much of a baker. So that should be enough evidence for you to believe that this really is the simplest homemade baked good in existence. My mom has been making this cornbread for us since we were kids. Now that it’s fall, it’s all I want to eat alongside a steaming stew, or grilled with butter and a cup of coffee. It’s soft, fluffy, and sweet — a departure from traditional cornbread, but delicious and so easy that there are literally only two steps: mix and bake. Unless you count the third one: devour.

  1. I LOVE cornbread for the same reason. It’s essentially no fail & is so forgiving of any shortcomings I may have as a baker. It’s cheap, easy to make, & such a comfort food. What could be better?

    • Yes, yes, you’ve got it. Although, after seeing all the yummy looking confections on your blog lately, I don’t think you have any shortcomings as a baker.

  2. This looks delicious! I love cornbread and am guilty of making the Trader Joe’s boxed mix type. šŸ˜› I think it’s so cute how your recipe lists the butter in blocks as opposed to sticks! BTW, we bought a small blueberry pie at a local farm the other day and I thought of you! šŸ™‚

    • Haha, omg, I was just going to confess that I use the box mix as well! It always turns out well so I don’t bother making it from scratch, but this recipe makes it look so easy!

      Love love love corn bread. Mmmmmm.

      • As you know, I have nothing against boxed mixes — only when I forget to stock up on them! Steph, that’s so sweet that you thought of me when you bought your pie. What farm were you at? Anum, let me know how it turns out when you make it?

  3. That looks so yummy and I love that its your mothers recipe, which makes it even more special.

    • Over time, I’ve learned that all the delicious things my mom makes are the simplest recipes around, so I use them as the core of my (albeit small) cooking repertoire. If you end up making this, I’d love to know how it goes.

  4. Yum! I love cornbread! Best served, in my opinion with a delicious chili or stew on a cold fall or winter day. Perfection!

  5. Mom’s cornbread is the best! You did a great job of preparing it! šŸ™‚

  6. Agreed! Hands down your mama’s cornbread is the best! Surprisingly, cornmeal is hard to find herein Oz – not quite as ubiquitous as in the states. I’m on a major mission to track some down now though! xx

    • Do they sell Bisquick there? Then, if you can’t find any, you can just make this one. I love that you have such fond childhood memories of my mom’s cooking.

      • They don’t sell Bisquick here! I should be able to find the cornmeal though šŸ™‚ And yes, I can attest to your mom’s wonderful cooking – great memories from the hanna badda days! Will let you know how the recipe turns out for sure. xx

  7. I think my mom’s recipe is very similar. I know it is Bisquick-heavy at least. I like more cornmeal-heavy cornbread too.

  8. So glad I remembered your website address Joy! What a wonderful slice of heaven you have over here (and a great recipe too that I’ll be sure to pin!!)

  9. Oh my — this looks positively delicious! I LOVE cornbread so I am definitely going to have to make this. Thanks so much for sharing with us!
