Old-Fashioned Cornbread

cornbreadOld-Fashioned Cornbread

It took me a few years and several brands of cornmeal and many recipes to finally find one that everyone in my family loved. Now I have friends who ask for “Hallee’s cornbread” and friends who come for dinner whose children want to know if they’re having “Hallee’s Special Cornbread!”


1 cup yellow cornmeal (I used to only use House Autry brand, and now I grind popcorn)
1 cup flour (I’ve used whole wheat or unbleached – both were very successful – I’ve even mixed the two with success.)
1 TBS sugar (I’ve used brown sugar and honey with success)
1 tsp Kosher or sea salt
1 TBS baking powder
2 eggs
1 ¼ cup whole milk
2 TBS oil (no one liked it when I used extra virgin olive oil – I use safflower or canola)


Measuring cups/spoons
mixing bowl
baking pan (I use 9 inch square pan or I also use cast-iron corn muffins pan)


Heat oven to 425° degrees F.

Grease pan.


Mix the dry ingredients. Make a well in the dry batter.

Add the wet ingredients and mix, gently, with whisk until smooth.

Pour into prepared pan.

Bake 15-20 minutes.
