My Favorite Cornbread

I made some chili over the weekend--- along with some cornbread.  I love cornbread with chili!

Last week,  I bought the cornmeal at Cahill's Market in Bluffton, SC here --a store that carries homemade items such as jellies, cheese,  fresh produce, grits and cornmeal grown locally in SC.  Their restaurant serves lunch and dinner daily.  The rumor around the Bluffton area is that they make the best  fried chicken in the area.  I can't attest to that since I have never eaten there!

Here is the recipe for the cornbread:

In mixing bowl, combine 1 cup flour, add 1 cup yellow cornmeal, 2/3 c. sugar, 1 teas. salt, 3 1/2 teas. baking powder.  Add 1 egg along with 1 cup milk and stir in 1/3 cup vegetable oil.  (I always substitute canola oil).

Pour batter into a 9" greased cake pan and bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Time to enjoy!
 Have a great week!


  1. There's nothing like chili in the winter. I freeze tomatoes in vacuum seal bags . The goodness of the garden all winter long in the form of chili! Your cornbread looks amazing.

  2. LOVE cornbread! But I never add sugar, tastes too much like cake!!

  3. Of all the baking that I do, I've never made cornbread! Looks delish, Kelly.

  4. I love cornbread with chili, too! I have never made it from scratch before so this looks like a recipe to try. Yours looks so good! Thanks!


  5. I just made cornbread last week alongside my Lentils & Rice. I will have to post the recipe too!

  6. I've never seen that brand, but I do love cornbread! This looks like the recipe I've always used.

    Brand really does make a difference in some cases. In years past, when we would go to the beach in Mexico, we would bring back a 5 lb sack of sugar. It was less refined and courser and we liked the taste. But, sometime you have to explain to Customs Agents!

  7. Thanks for leaving me such a sweet comment about my curtains!

    I'm glad I stopped over...your blog is lovely. How about this for a HUGE mother lived in Pennsylvania for years but just moved last year to Bluffton, SC!!! Are you near Hampton Lakes?

    btw, cornbread is one of my favorite things to eat. I'll have to have my mother send me some of that mix. :)

  8. Hi Kelly,
    That is some good looking cornbread and the chili too!
    Perfect comfort food...
    Thanks for sharing.
    All the Best,

  9. That looks so good! We have some of that at our farmer's market and I was wondering if it was any good. Glad you posted this I just might have to give it a try.
