Cornbread Love

This is my 300th post.  For those of you who subscribe and hang in there with me—thank you!

As a milestone to mark the occasion, I thought to pluck my beloved moments from the archives and revisit them.

Nope, what you need is this cornbread recipe.








I worked this recipe out a zillion years ago after experimenting with lots of ingredients, including sweet potatoes.  I wanted to use whole grains, and little fat with a substantial outcome, not a brick.

Everyone has his or her favorite way of making cornbread.  It can be sweet and more cake-like with a delicate crumb or like my dense, savory, and not particularly sweet corn child.  This alone makes it the perfect vehicle to deliver sweet honey, homemade jams or apple butter; or to crumble into your bowl of chili before heading out to a Halloween carnival.








It is a sort of one-bowl wonder.

Creamed Corn Cornbread








Yes, it has a special place at Thanksgiving too…

Creamed Corn Cornbread


  • 1 cup stone ground cornmeal
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 (14 ½ ounce) can cream-style corn
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 Tablespoon canola oil
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • honey


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Mix well with a fork, and then make a well in the center.
  3. Combine creamed corn, buttermilk, egg whites, oil and applesauce in a medium bowl: mix until well blended. Pour liquid ingredients into the well of the dry ingredients and fold until well combined.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake 35-40 minutes until the cornbread tests done in the center and top is lightly golden brown.
  5. Brush the top with a glaze of honey while the cornbread is still warm.
  6. Serves 8
