I have always been a huge fan of cornbread. Our son, Landon, is also a big fan of cornbread. We can polish off, half a pan in no-time! I like to spread butter on top, right out of the oven. A drizzle of honey, doesn’t hurt. My mom, makes a delicious cornbread stuffing. I love that stuff!

This recipe comes together so fast. I mix all the ingredients into one bowl. Stir and combine well.

Truth: I had the cornbread recipe, to our liking. But… I had to keep making fresh cornbread, over a 4 week period, to get these pictures. I just wasn’t happy with any of the pictures. This round of pictures, turned out better. ( Plus, we kept eating it all!)

Here’s a picture, of the first batch of this sweet cornbread.

Sweet Cornbread – Makes an 8 x 8 inch pan.

  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup cornmeal ( I used fine ground)
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour


Step One: Preheat the oven to 350 F Degrees. Spray an 8 x 8 inch pan, with non-stick cooking spray. Or, line with foil. Set the prepared pan, off to the side. In a medium mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients. Whisk the melted butter, milk, egg, baking powder, pinch of salt, sugar, corn meal and flour together. Make sure, all the ingredients are fully incorporated. Use a rubber spatula, to scrape into prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven, for 20 minutes. 

Spread the top of the cornbread with butter, before serving. Honey is optional.
