Yum, I love cornbread! I think it should have a hint of sweet, a bit of crunch, and it should be moist. When I was flipping through a Southern Living magazine that Ron bought me for Christmas, I found a recipe that I wanted to try. Actually I found about 50 recipes I wanted to try, but this was one for cornbread.

I have to admit that I’ve only made cornbread one other time from scratch and it was kind of a bomb. Since then I’ve gotten by using the Jiffy cornbread mix that comes in a box. Yes, that’s right, the $0.59 box of cornbread is what I had resorted to using, until now. When I made this recipe for the first time I was either really hungry (which I could have been) or it was just so darn good, because I could have eaten the whole pan and not eaten a spoonful of the chili it was supposed to complement. Enjoy!

Super-Moist Cornbread
Makes 8 servings

1/3 cup butter
1 (8-oz) container of sour cream
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 (8 1/4-oz) can cream-style corn
1 cup self-rising white cornmeal mix

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat 1/3 cup butter in a 2-qt baking dish in the oven for 5 minutes or until butter melts.

Whisk together sour cream, eggs, and cream-style corn in a medium bowl. Whisk in 1 cup cornmeal mix just until combined. Whisk into melted butter. Pour batter into baking dish.

Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

  1. I like cornbread with bean soup on the second day when it's thick. I have an iron corncob pan/device that makes cornbread shaped in little corncob shaped pieces. It's one my grandmother had. YUMOh, the Jiffy cornbread mix is great. I prefer it to scratch but have done scratch before too. I like the idea of the sour cream in the recipe you have. Also I've made it with corn kernels and cheese too.

  2. Hi I live in England and wanted to try to make cornbread, wondered if you could tell me how much in grams 1 cup is equivalent to? all your recipes look so yummy thanks
