Made with whole-grain cornmeal and white whole-wheat flour, this healthy cornbread recipe is quick enough for a weeknight and perfect to serve with chili or instead of dinner rolls. We like to make a few extra batches of the dry mix and store it in the freezer. To make a batch of cornbread, just measure out 2 cups of dry mix and combine with the liquid ingredients. If you don't want to pull out your food processor, you can skip pureeing the corn in Step 2 and instead whisk an 8-ounce can of creamed corn with the egg, milk, oil and sugar before combining with the dry ingredients.

  • Whisk cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Pulse corn and egg in a food processor or blender until almost smooth. Add milk, oil and honey (or sugar); pulse until combined. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, spreading evenly.

  • Bake the cornbread until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature

Tips

Make Ahead Tip: Cool and store airtight at room temperature for up to 1 day or refrigerate for up to 3 days. Reheat if desired.

Whole-grain cornmeal (with the nutritious germ and fiber-rich bran left intact) is increasingly available in well-stocked supermarkets. Look for “whole grain” on the label. For this recipe, we recommend using “fine” or “medium” whole-grain cornmeal.

White whole-wheat flour, made from a special variety of white wheat, is light in color and flavor but has the same nutritional properties as regular whole-wheat flour. It is available at large supermarkets and natural-foods stores and online at bobsredmill.com or kingarthurflour.com. Store it in the freezer.
