Sheila's Story

This recipe is 27years old. I have been making it for 20years now. The buttermilk in this recipe, gives this bread a wonderful flavor, and the touch of sugar added, enhances the flavor as well.
My husband loves to have this cornbread with my chili, on cold winter nights.


1 1/2 c
yellow cornmeal
1 c
all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
1 1/2 c
large egg, beaten
2 Tbsp
corn oil
4 Tbsp

Directions Step-By-Step

In large bowl blend the cornmeal, flour,baking soda,salt, and sugar. Stir in buttermilk, egg and oil
In a 9- or 10-inch pan, spray sides and bottom with oil. Then spread batter in pan and bake 30 minutes. In a 400 degrees oven. Serve hot with butter!

    Shelia, I'm gonna try this next time I make cornbread. I have been trying every buttermilk cornbread recipe to try & duplicate my Great Uncle Nothel's cornbread & haven't succeeded yet. His had the great tangy taste of buttermilk & was so moist.

    I went by the recipe & the cornbread came out of the iron skillet & looked pretty. The taste was AWFUL! I don't know if it was the yellow corn meal or adding the cup of flour that made it so dry it about choked you. It didn't taste at all like any corn bread I ever had! I wanted to try it because I've been looking for a good buttermilk corn bread recipe but was very disappointed with this one! "Packy" corn bread (not moist at all).
