Sweet Corn Bread

Could this finally be the winner? I’ve been on the search for a sweet corn bread recipe that tastes similar, if not better, than the Jiffy cornbread mix you buy at the store. I grew up on Jiffy, and while it would be easy to just buy those boxes, I’m determined to find a “from scratch” recipe that I like. This one that I found in the Taste of Home cookbook, also available online, is very good, but I’m still not done searching. This is definitely up there, I’ll make it again, but I’m still looking for one just another notch better.

Sweet Corn Bread

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted

In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Combine the egg, sour cream, milk and butter; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

Pour into a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm.

Serves 9

    […] I’ve tried several homemade versions, but sadly, none were quite as good as Jiffy. Then I received an email from Carol Gaunitz. Carol is a reader of this blog and noticed some commentary I posted about finding a good sweet cornbread recipe. […]
