Al’s Heavenly Cornbread


This recipe is my secret weapon. I’ve never eaten a more moist and delicious cornbread and everyone agrees. I cannot make this without being asked for the recipe, most recently by my parents when they were out for a visit in January.

Full disclosure – when you see the ingredients in this recipe, you will know why it’s so good. Not nearly as healthy as my sister’scornbread recipe, this one reads more like a yellow cake recipe with a bit of cornmeal mixed in. Thanks to my college roommate Alison for the recipe I adapted this from.
Mix your dry ingredients in one bowl. I usually sift them to eliminate clumps.

Mix your wet ingredients in another.

Pour dry ingredients into wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Bake in a greased 8x8 pan for 35 minutes at 350F.

I usually double this recipe and divide it into two pans. The second pan can be wrapped in plastic wrap and tinfoil and frozen for up to three months.

  1. That looks delicious! It is officially bookmarked. Now I just have to get all the ingredients and find a time to make it.

  2. While credit is lovely and the corn bread is too, I got the recipe off the Alber's brand corn meal box.
