Tender Sweet Cornbread

Penny Burdge


This cornbread is the perfect accompaniment to a spicy chili or soup. I serve it with my Black Bean Vegetable soup.
This is a very tender cornbread, so you might want to eat it with a fork!
It's easy to make this Gluten Free - Just substitute a GF all purpose flour for regular all purpose flour. Comes out great.

How to Make Tender Sweet Cornbread


  1. Whisk together the corn meal, flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.
  2. Stir in the beaten eggs, melted Crisco and butter, and the milk.
  3. Beat together just until smooth. Do NOT over-beat.
  4. Pour the batter into a greased 8" x 12" pan. Bake in the center of a 400?F oven for about 30 minutes until the edges and top are golden.
  5. If you'd like muffins instead, this will make 2 dozen using 1/4 Cup batter in each muffin cup. Decrease the baking time to about 15-20 minutes.
