If we're being honest, this recipe is more like a corn cake than a corn bread. But that's what makes it so delicious. I made a batch this morning to serve with chili tonight for dinner, but I have a feeling that the majority of it will be eaten as an after-school snack. I don't remember where I found it - it's the sort of recipe that you scribble down on a scrap of paper and then make so often that you have it memorized.


In a large bowl, whisk together:
2 cups baking mix (like Bisquick)
6 tablespoons corn meal
1/2 cup sugar
then set aside.

1/2 cup butter

and add:
2 eggs
1 cup milk

Stir into the dry ingredients just until combined. Pour into a greased 8x8 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes, or until golden brown on top.

Serve warm with a pat of butter and a drizzle of honey.


  1. We always ate cornbread as breakfast! My mom would bake 2 9x13's (7 kids) and pour milk and sugar on top and eat like oatmeal. Imagine my embarrassment at a restaurant when they served it and i asked, "where is the bowl and milk?"

    try it, it's delicious!

  2. Looks so good! I can't wait to try it!
