Homemade Cornbread recipe

I know I’m supposed to be posting soup and salad recipes – but this Homemade Cornbread recipe is the perfect side dish to the Tortilla soup that I’ll be posting tomorrow. So I’m sharing it with you today, so you can be ready. 🙂 I admit I’ve never made homemade cornbread before – I think I made Jiffy once or twice (I know, terrible) so I think I went from a junk car to a Mercedes Benz in my taste of cornbread and I’m not sure I can ever go back!

I’d love to hear from those of your who are certified cornbread fans – let me know what you think!


 1/2 pound butter, melted (yes, that is two sticks)

1 cup sugar

4 eggs, slightly beaten

1 can (16.5 oz) cream style corn

1/2 Cup grated Monterey Jack cheese

1/2 Cup grated cheddar cheese

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 Cup flour

1 Cup yellow corn meal

4 teaspoons baking powder

1 can (4 ounces) green chilies, optional


1.) Mix all ingredients together and place in a 9 x 13 pan.

2.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. As soon as you place the pan into the oven, drop the temperature to 300 degrees. Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Makes 10 servings!

  1. I love cornbread and eat it crumbled up in a bowl of milk! :9 We just had Chili and cornbread for dinner on last night. I’ll try your recipe next time!

  2. I prefer using honey instead of sugar in cornbread. You use less, it makes the bread a little more dense or cake like and I love the unique flavor.
