Easy Cornbread Recipe

Anyone a fan of the cornbread at The Cracker Barrel? If so, you want to add this Corn Light Bread to your menu ASAP. I made this cornbread last week. This was my first time making Corn Light Bread, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I took one bite and was impressed. This bread is a little sweet and a whole lotta good! It is even better slathered with butter and topped with syrup!

How to Make Corn Light Bread

This cornbread is very easy to make. Place two bread pans in the oven and preheat. Whisk together flour, self-rising cornmeal, sugar, baking soda, egg, oil, and buttermilk. Remove the pans from the oven. Pour the batter between the two pans and bake. 

I used Martha White self-rising cornmeal. You can use any variety – yellow cornmeal mix, white cornmeal mix, or buttermilk cornbread mix. I used whole buttermilk, but this would also work fine with low-fat or fat-free buttermilk. If you don’t have any buttermilk in the fridge you can also make your own! Take two cups of milk and add 2 Tbsp of lemon juice or vinegar. Let the milk sit for about 5 minutes and you have a quick and easy buttermilk substitute!

The Best Corn Light Bread

I am not usually a fan of sweet cornbread, but this cornbread was amazing. This will be at all of our BBQs and cookouts this summer. This cornbread goes with everything – chicken, pork, BBQ, beef, casseroles, soup, vegetables. Really anything! Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with this bread:

  1. This recipe sounds delicious! I was wondering if it would work in muffin pans instead of loaf pans.
    Thank you,

    1. I haven’t made this in muffin pans yet. I would check them at 15 minutes and then keep checking every few minutes.
