  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup unsalted butter melted


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  • Coat a square 8x8 baking pan with cooking spray
  • In a large bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt
  • Add milk, eggs and butter
  • Combine until just mixed
  • Pour into prepared pan
  • Bake for 20-30 or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean



  • To be certain the cornbread is done baking, insert a toothpick in the middle after the timer goes off. If the toothpick comes out clean, it's ready to be pulled from the oven.
  • Let the cornbread cool a little before cutting. If it's hot, it's going to crumble and become messy. (but still tasty!)
  • You can subsite the regular milk in this recipe with buttermilk for a little tang!
  • To Freeze-  cut it into squares and place in a sealed container. Thaw by letting it sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
  • To Reheat - wrap in foil and reheat in the oven for about 15 minutes at 350°F.
