Take a break from regular bread with this fluffy cornbread that's baked to perfection.

Prep Time



Total Time






Cooking spray to grease pan
cup butter or margarine (1/2 stick)
cup milk
large egg
1 1/4
cups yellow, white or blue cornmeal
cup all-purpose flour
cup granulated sugar
tablespoon baking powder
teaspoon salt
  1. Heat the oven to 400°F. Spray the bottom and sides of an 8-inch square pan or 9-inch round cake pan with the cooking spray.
  2. In a 1-quart saucepan, heat the butter over low heat until melted.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the melted butter, milk and egg with a fork or wire whisk until well mixed. Add the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt all at once; stir just until the flour is moistened (batter will be lumpy). Pour batter into the pan; use a rubber spatula to scrape batter from bowl. Spread batter evenly in pan and smooth top of batter.
  4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm.

Corn Muffins:
Place a paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups, or spray just the bottoms of the cups with cooking spray. Fill each cup about 3/4 full with batter. Bake as directed in step 4. Remove muffins from the pan to a cooling rack.
Cornbread Doneness Test
A toothpick inserted in the center will have uncooked batter clinging to it if the cornbread is not fully baked.
