Quick Easy How To Make A Cornbread Loaf

Updated on August 28, 2012

How To Make Cornbread as a Loaf

This is a great recipe for making cornbread as a loaf; traditionally, most cornbreads are baked either in cast iron fry pans or in 8 x 8 baking pans, but this recipe is unique in that you bake it in a loaf pan. It is great as a stand-alone or as a side to any soup or stew. Serve warm with a swipe of butter or margarine - or use as the cornbread ingredient for stuffing recipes.



  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 eggs or 1/2 cup of egg substitute
  • 1-1/4 cup milk (or see variation below)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter or corn oil
  • Vegetable spray


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a loaf pan 8-1/2 x 4-1/2 x 2 with vegetable spray.
  3. Mix all the dry ingredients (cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt, baking powder).
  4. In another small bowl, beat the eggs or pour in egg substitute.
  5. Add milk and melted butter or oil.
  6. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients mixing until JUST blended.
  7. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes, until golden brown and tester inserted in center comes out clean.
  9. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan and then turn out onto a rack to cool.
  10. Best served warm with a dab of butter or margarine or
  11. Use this recipe as the cornbread for roasted turkey with cornbread stuffing.

Maple Variation For Corn Bread Recipe

If you like a maple cornbread taste, you can substitute 1/4 cup of pure maple syrup for 1/4 cup of the milk in the original recipe.  Just reduce the milk then to 1 cup and add 1/4 cup of pure maple syrup.  Totally different taste but equally delicious.
