Real Cornbread

October/November 2006

Your rating: None Average: 3.2 (134 votes)

This traditional cornbread is made without flour, isn't sweet and has a crumbly texture. You can change the adaptable recipe to suit your cornbread preference. For a variation, substitute 1/2 teaspoon baking soda for the baking powder and use buttermilk instead of milk. If you're looking for a more muffinlike texture, substitute flour for half the cornmeal.



READER'S COMMENT:
"This cornbread is GREAT! The texture is spot on what cornbread should be. Not cake-y; more dense & crumbly. I will say that it would be great to experiment w/ different flavors (like adding in some onion, peppers, etc). I am going...

Real cornbread in brazil

Couldn't find baking powder or buttermilk in Rio. Used baking soda and sour milk (added 3 tsp of vinegar to 1 cup of milk.). Also added 2 packets of sugar - it turned out perfect!

Tasty, good crumble, sturdy enuf to spread peanut butter on.

Dry and flavorless

I needed a quick cornbread receipe and decided to try this since I had the basics on hand (made according to the receipe, did not use buttermilk.) My family found this cornbread to be dry, tasteless, and in desperate need of some butter and a pinch of sugar. The "healthy" edge loses it's advantage when you have to smother it in butter to get it down.

You are probably a smoker and can't taste anything lol ;) Cook it with a little olive oil and add a little butter and salt into the recipe.

Needed something...

I tried this recipe for a few reasons...needed it done quick, was healthier and easy to adjust. I did use the buttermilk and substituted 1 cup flour for 1 cup cornmeal as mentioned in the recipe notes. Loved the texture! Only took 15 mins to bake but was missing something. Maybe needed some brown sugar in recipe or possibly something savory like peppers and onions. I will try again with new addition.

good basic recipe, easy to prepare

I just used this recipe. It was awesome! I thought it would be stiff and packey. But not so, it was just the right texture and had a lil sweetness to it, which is the way the children like it. Thanks
