Easy Cornbread

Hey Guys!!

Thanksgiving is fast approaching and I’ve been busy in the kitchen prepping the dishes I can make ahead and freeze. One of my favorite Thanksgiving sides if cornbread stuffing and I love to use my homemade cornbread as the base.


This cornbread is an amazing side for homemade soup and chili too, it’s so moist and flavorful and can easily be doubled to a 13×9 size too!

I don’t know where I got the original recipe but I have tweaked it over the 10+ years I’ve been making it. It’s a super simple recipe that can be made in the same pan you melt the butter.



1/2 cup butter

2/3 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 cup buttermilk

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup cornmeal

1 cup flour

1/ 2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Spray an 8 inch square pan or  9 inch pie dish with cooking spray. (You can also make this easily into corn muffins.)

Melt butter in large pan

Remove from heat and stir in sugar, quickly add eggs and mix until well blended.

Add buttermilk, baking soda and vanilla and stir into butter mixture.

Add cornmeal, flour and salt and mix just until blended.

Pour batter into prepared pan

Bake at 375 for 30-40 mins or until the center spring back when pressed with your finger. Be care it’s hot!

You can also use a toothpick and see if it comes out clean when inserted in the center of the bread.

For Muffins Bake 15-20 minutes or until center spring back when pressed

Happy Baking!!

  1. OK…Don’t laugh too hard, but my Dad (grew up as a bonafide farm boy with cows and corn and everything) used to like to eat cornbread as a dessert!!! He would mix peanut butter and light Karo syrup together, pour it over the cornbread and eat it!!! I will admit to trying and actually liking it. I haven’t had it in like 50 years, but I remember how much he enjoyed it. This recipe just brought that fun memory to mind. Thanks for that. I miss him, especially this time of year. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

    1. Aww what a sweet memory of your Dad. Thank you for sharing it with me! I lost my Dad when I was 13 so I understand what it’s like missing family around the Holidays. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving as well. 💕
