This Easy Homemade Cornbread comes together quickly in one bowl, and is the perfect side for soups and chilis. Don’t forget the butter and honey!


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup corn meal
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk (or buttermilk*)
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray an 8 by 8 (or 9 by 9) inch pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, corn meal, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.  Whisk together, and then add milk, eggs, oil, and butter.  Whisk together until the batter is mostly smooth but be careful not to over mix.
  3. Pour the batter into the pan, and smooth it out to the edges.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until the top springs back when pressed gently, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  4. Cut into bars and serve warm with butter and honey.


*This recipe will work with both milk and buttermilk.  I think the buttermilk makes it a little more dense and rich.   You can also add 1 tablespoon of white vinegar to the milk, stir, and let sit for 10 minutes to make a buttermilk substitute.
