This was a recipe I decided to try for Thanksgiving 2005.
Thanks Brian Edmonds for putting it up on the internet.

Basic Cornbread

I’ve tried a couple other recipes (though not yet the one below), and this is the recipe I keep coming back to. I got it at a Bed & Breakfast on Vancouver Island a few years when my parents were out visiting.

  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup wholewheat flour
  • 1/2 cup allpurpose flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup oil

Preheat the oven to 400F and lightly grease a 9-inch square pan. Mix the cornmeal and milk in a small bowl so the cornmeal can soak while preparing the rest of the ingredients. In a large bowl mix together the flours, baking powder and sugar. Mix the egg and oil together well and stir into the cornmeal. Add the cornmeal to the flour and stir to moisten. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center of the pan. Makes 16 squares.

I like to vary this and make it more nutritionally complete by adding a few extras to the flour before stirring in the cornmeal. One variant is to fry up a few sausages, chop them into little bits, and add them to the flour. Another is to chop up some green (or red) pepper and onion (zucchini is also nice) and add that to the flour with a teaspoon of oregano. I haven’t tried both together yet, but probably will sometime. I often cut these into 8 pieces instead of 16 and freeze whatever I don’t eat right away so I can just pull out one or two and microwave them if I feel like a quick snack or a light meal.
