Country Corn Bread

(8 Votes)
30 Min

This is the best homemade corn bread recipe around! Made in a skillet, this corn bread comes out of the oven so hot and delicious it screams, "butter, please!" Our Country Corn Bread is a traditional recipe that's perfect for the holidays or anytime!

What You'll Need:
  • 3 cups cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a 10-inch cast iron skillet or 8-inch square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients; mix well then pour batter into prepared baking pan.
  3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden and a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cut and serve warm, or allow to cool before serving.



If you have a large cast-iron skillet and would like to make crispy corn bread, place 1/3 cup vegetable oil in the skillet and heat in the 450-degree oven until hot. Remove from oven and pour batter over hot oil. Return skillet to oven and bake as above.

What if I don't have a cast iron skillet - can I make this in the oven?

I am from Arkansas. You have to much corn meal,to many eggs,to much salt & we don't use sugar. Sorry but your close.

Best Cornbread recipe that I have found. My family loves it!

No sugar.

Sounds yummy to me

very bland and dry. I was very disappointed.

willow1 I always add a heaping tablespoon of mayonnaise to ensure moistness.

I agree. I made this yesterday for dinner guests and it was tasteless and very, very dry. I used a glass 8" square baking dish and had it in the oven for just 30 minutes. After dinner when only 2 pieces were eaten, I tossed the cornbread in the garbage along with the recipe. I would have had better results if I had purchased a boxed cornbread mix at the grocery store. Sorry.

This is very tasty, thanks for these good receipes.
