If you had mentioned cornbread to me a few years ago, I would have made the face of an infant who had just tasted lemon for the first time. Seriously! I despised the stuff. Then one day, we went a friends house and they served cornbread. To be polite, I took a small bite and to my surprise, I actually liked it! Hence my love for cornbread began. Over the last few years I have grown partial to the stuff, although I still despise the dry, coarse cornbread out there. I found this recipe and served it with dinner last night and I am convinced this is my new favorite! It went swimmingly with my vegetarian chili. To see the original recipe for this bread visit cooking on the ranch.
I am sharing this with my friends for Fiesta Friday! Go see what’s happening and join the party!
Linda’s Moist Cornbread Recipe
*I doubled the recipe and cooked in a 9″ by 13″ pan and it turned out beautifully!*
1 cup yellow corn meal
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tbs baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs — beaten
1 cup buttermilk (I used regular 2%)
3 Tbs canola oil
1 can corn — drained
1 cup shredded cheese — mexican mix (I omitted)
3 Tbs pickled jalapenos — diced (I omitted)
1. Preheat oven to 375. Combine the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and oil. Gently fold the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients until a batter is formed. Fold in the corn, cheese, and pickled jalapenos.
2. Pour batter into a lightly greased 8-inch square baking pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the crust is light-brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the heat and let cool a few minutes.
I love cornbread, but only if it’s moist! I’m not too fond of eating cardboard. Dry cornbread = cardboard. 🙂
Haha! Yeah, cardboard says it about right. Thanks for the link and comment! Happy Fiesta Friday!

It looks moist & delicious.
Thanks, Pam! It was!
cornbread lover myself–your recipe looks tasty! Especially love your new design here–spiffy 🙂
Thanks Liz! Cornbread is one of those things you either love or don’t…Happy to hear you love it!
Thank you! I had fun redesigning. Funny! I thought I was the only one who still used the word “spiffy!”. 🙂
I’m a cornbread gal and this looks great, especially with a bowl of chili. Nothing is better with corn bread than a bowl of good chili. 🙂 I like what you’d done on your blog by the way. Thumbs up, Kloe! 🙂
Thank you, Anna! I agree cornbread and chili are the perfect match. 🙂 I am glad you like the new set up. I loved redesigning and trying new things!
I made cornbread once and it was a disaster! I don’t back down though, I think I need a new recipe and yours will be the one I try next Kloe! 🙂
Yay! Go for it! I am sure it will turn out right. Still waiting for those bananas, by the way. I can’t wait to try your recipe!
Have a lovely day!
Aww you’re so cute! Let me know when your bananas are ready! I’ll keep you posted about the cornbread 🙂
I LOVE cornbread– the buttermilk is the secret, yes? Looks moist and delicious- great! Perfect with chili 🙂
Thanks! Milk definitely helped make it moist and serving it with chili was perfect. Thank you for stopping by, come back again!
I love cornbread and this sounds like a great recipe! 🙂
Cornbread is my favorite! I rarely get around to eating it, but when I do I can’t stop! Thanks so much for the recipe! It sounds so good!
Thanks so much, Ashley! I know what you mean cornbread is addicting. 🙂 I hope you do try it!
I LOVE cornbread. So happy that it’s a part of your life now 🙂
Thanks, for stopping by Erin! Yeah, I am glad to have found the good in it too.
Hi Kloe! Thanks for bringing this recipe to Fiesta Friday. I know what you mean about suddenly rediscovering a food. Cornbread is great although I always make it as an afterthought and end up being lazy and use the prepackaged kind lol. It always is one of the best elements of the dish, so I’ll definitely be saving this to try later!
Thanks! It is a perfect way to finish off a meal! Hope you try it out, it’s definitely a keeper at my place. Have a blessed Sunday. ♥
So nice to find your site and thanks so much for the link-back to my blog. I was like you for years. Every time I tried to like cornbread it was dry, fall apart. odd. I didn’t get why anyone would make it. But if you take the time to spruce it up, it sure can be good. It’s cold today in Denver, wish I had a bowl of chili and some cornbread. 🙂
Thank you for the recipe! I really enjoyed making it and it was a snap! I know, some cornbread is so gross, but it looks like the secret is adding wet ingredients and you nailed it! Thanks for stopping by Lean Ann. 🙂
I LOVE cornbread, Kloe, and whip it up often. Buttermilk is so great in it, and this is just calling my name! I’d love some with a side of your veggie chili. 🙂
I am glad! The veggie chili went so well with it. I hope you give ’em a try!
This looks like an awesome recipe for cornbread! I can’t wait to try it!! 😀
Thank you so much, Julianna!
Kloe, I’m with you on the dry cornbread! I make that same face you used to! 😛
Haha! Yeah, if it’s dry it’s no good! Thanks for stopping in, Patty! ♥
Nice to see you here, Kloe! Sorry haven’t stopped earlier.
This cornbread looks awesome. Haven’t had one before, but this sounds great! 🙂
Thanks for the welcome, Jhuls! It is so nice of you to always drop in! 🙂 You haven’t had cornbread before? Wow, you are missing out! (If it is moist that is…)
I love cornbread Kloe! I have not made it in a long, long time, but this reminds me that I need to because I love it!
Thanks for stopping in, Kristi! I hope you try it, it is one of my favorites now!
I’ll just take the whole thing please… hand me the pan and a fork and I’ll just sit in a corner quietly enjoying this beautiful cornbread! I LOVE cornbread. You can see in the photos just how moist and delicious yours is Kloe…
There have been times when I’m at a restaurant, and I order a side of cornbread, and that first dry bite…it’s just so disappointing! I can tell that this is a winner!
I’m so glad you brought your cornbread to the table on Fiesta Friday!! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe, it’s one that I know I’ll be trying soon.
By the way… the cookies turned out spectacular!! The family actually ate them! And while they didn’t look as pretty as yours did, they were soft and chewy and absolutely delicious! I’m keeping your recipe forever…and every time I bake them, you can be sure that I’ll be thinking of sweet Kloe! ❤
Thank you for the wonderful comment! It made my day! I am glad you like the cornbread. It was really good. I was surprised to find myself all over it….considering I used to really despise cornbread.
Oh goody! I am glad your family enjoyed the cookies. Last time I made them all day long everyone was asking me if they could have another one. Haha!
Thanks again! Hugs!
Moist cornbread? That sounds so good! I’m pinning it for later 🙂
Thank you so much, Agos!
Love that you made cornbread from scratch. It’s so much better! I would have surely added the jalapeños 🙂
Haha! That’s great! I am just not a spicey kind of gal. 😉 Let me know how it works for you if you do end up adding the jalapeños.
I love cornbread and so glad you you are sharing a recipe you like now too 🙂
Thanks! I am glad I finally found a recipe I love!
I haven’t managed to find a good recipe for cornbread yet – all been to dry and cardboard-y(!)
But as your choc chip cookeies worked so well, i’m going to try this one next.
This is a really good recipe! Yay! I am glad you liked my chocolate chip cookies! They are a family favorite here. 🙂 Thanks for the sweet comment, Emma!
I love cornbread but never make it enough. Thanks for linking up to Sweet and Savoury Sunday, stop by and link up again. Have a great day!!
