Cornbread Made From Scratch

     It was Easter day, and I wanted to make a yummy home cooked meal.  I haven't made cornbread at home in a long time, well because I used to use the classic boxed recipe, and it always came out dry for me.  So when my husband suggested cornbread, I went online to see if I could maybe make it from scratch.  I found a recipe, tweaked it a little, and this is what I came up with.  The bread actually tastes really good and moist!  This is now going to be my go to cornbread if I need to make some at home!


  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 2/3 cup of white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 cup of cornmeal
  • 1 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and spray a 8 inch square baking pan
  2. Melt the butter in a pan on the stove.  
  3. Once melted, remove from heat and add the sugar, mixing completely.  Add eggs, mix completely.  Add buttermilk and baking soda to the mixture and stir.  Finally stir in the flour, cornmeal and salt.  Stir mixture completely so it is smooth and there are no flour lumps left.
  4. Pour into the pan, and bake for about 30 minutes, or until an inserted tooth pick comes out clean.
  5. ENJOY!
Let me know if you make it and how it comes out!
