Cornbread is any quick bread containing cornmeal, popular in Native American cuisine as well as in Greek, Portuguese, and in Turkish cuisine. They are usually leavened by baking powder.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup regular cornmeal minus 1 tablespoon with
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour and
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 1/2 cups grated cheese (part cheddar, part Mozzarella)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 341mL tin regular corn with
  • 1 tablespoon whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup milk, or more to reach batter consistency


Preheat oven to 350°F / 175°C

Mix the dry ingredients together.

You could put some green pepper or jalapeños in too if that’s your style.

I usually add green onion, but we were out.

Then add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.

Play with the milk to get it to be sort of sloppy but not runny.

I topped ours with chili powder.

Bake in a 9″x11″ baking tray and bake for an hour or until a skewer comes out clean.

Delicious with butter or a nice thick gravy.
