Easy Cornbread Recipe

My Mom sent me this recipe. It was from someone that she knew. She assured me that this person was a good cook, so I gave it a try! OMG! SO good. It only has 5 ingredients and was ready in 30 minutes. We absolutely loved it! Easy and super delicious! This bread is great with soup, chili, stews, veggie plates, and your holiday meal.

How to Make Sour Cream Cornbread

This is super easy to make. Simply combine self-rising cornmeal, sour cream, creamed corn, eggs, and oil. Pour the batter into a baking dish and pop it in the oven.

  • Make sure you are buying self-rising cornmeal – it won’t turn out if you use regular cornmeal. I used Martha White Self-Rising Corn Meal in this cornbread.  
  • To make Homemade Self-Rising Cornmeal, combine 1 cup regular cornmeal with 1 Tablespoon baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  • I baked this in an 8×8-inch pan. Next time I might try this in my cast iron skillet. Either way, it will be crazy good. 
  • Can Cornbread be frozen? Yes! Cool the bread completely. Wrap the bread in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag and freeze. When ready to eat, thaw and reheat in the oven or microwave.

  1. I’m Making this cornbread now and it appears it’s going to be good , browning very golden lol : Now I double the potion of the Recipe. I’m also using a cast iron skillet , this is going to be a regular dish : I’m going to post a pic , thanks Chicken Legs

  2. I've made this recipe for years in my cast iron skillet that I put oil in and put in the oven with a chopped onion as the oven preheats. Then I pour into batter as I stir it and pour back into the skillet to bake. I add cheddar cheese to top. My family's fav cornbread.

  3. This is the best! I make it all the time. Leftovers are moist and tasty the next day, and it freezes well.

    1. It was SO easy and tasted great. Chicken Legs talks about this cornbread all the time. It was a real hit in our house!
