The BEST Pumpkin Cornbread Recipe

I’ve seen this recipe floating around the internet for a few months, and I finally mustered up the courage to give it a try.  I was very skeptical that this would work, but it did.   It was actually really good.  I mean really good! 

The cornbread wasn’t very sweet, so it went well with dinner.  We served it with some White Chicken Chili and it was great.  I will definitely make this again.  The only change I would make is to make pumpkin cornbread muffins – maybe even mini muffins. YUM

How to Make Pumpkin Cornbread Without Jiffy Mix

This cornbread is super easy to make from scratch. You don’t need a mixer, just a whisk, and a spoon or spatula. Start by whisking together the pumpkin puree, oil, eggs, and molasses. Next, add in all the dry ingredients and mix with a spoon or spatula. Pour the batter into an 8×8-inch baking dish and pop in the oven. SO easy!

  • Make sure to use pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling.
  • Feel free to make this pumpkin cornbread in a regular or mini muffin pan. Just make sure to adjust the time. The muffins won’t take as long as the pan.
  • You can make the cornbread a day in advance and store in an air-tight container.
  • Can Pumpkin Cornbread be frozen? Yes! Cool the cornbread completely after baking and place it in a freezer bag and freeze. Thaw and reheat in the microwave or oven when ready to eat.
