Quick and Easy Cornbread Recipes

Updated on December 21, 2017

Cornbread is not just for special occasions anymore. You can enjoy cornbread anytime of the year. While people have long enjoyed cornbread with Chili and other spicy foods, cornbread is great with many other dishes you might not have thought of. Here are some lesser known times and dishes that go with cornbread:

-- Breakfast with eggs and bacon (Yum!)

-- With soup, almost any kind works but personally I like it best with Tomato Soup or Broccoli and Cheddar Soup

-- With Meatloaf, you need something to soak up that grease

-- Breakfast with Oatmeal or Grits (Yessiree Bob)

-- With Vanilla Ice Cream and Caramel Sauce (betcha didn't see that one coming)

This is an easy cornbread recipe that you can make when you are in the mood for some chili. Perhaps you want to bake your own cornbread muffins or breads. This simple corn bread recipe compliments chili and other southwestern style dishes. Nothing tastes better with ribs than a side of some good old fashioned cornbread. There is nothing quite as good as this easy cornbread recipe.

      I Love cornbread. It is so easy, but I hardly ever make it. I love it both sweet and salty. However my favorite recipe is my moms (actually our family recipe) which is salty. Would love to have some cornbread and beans with greens. Yumm.

      Your lens is terrific. I'm just not a big fan of cornbread. I might eat it 2 times in a year.

      As a kid, hot, fresh, cornbread and buttermilk, that's was the ticket to gastronomic happiness. Blessed

      I love cornbread and it has the advantage of no gluten.

      Actually it looks pretty good. Never had cornbread, always use cornmeal just to make sure my pizza dough doesn't stick.

      In the south, its not cornbread unless its cooked in a cast iron skillet. Other than that, the recipe looks very tasty!

      I made this today, we ended up eating it with lunch. Kinda tasted like a cake-y kinda bread, but only just (yum lol). It was pretty good, can't believe it was all done in 30 mins. Thanks again. (still can't get over how quick it was lol)

      My grandma always served cornbread with fish. I like my cornbread on the sweeter side. Nice Lens.

      This sounds delicious, indeed - I can't wait to give it a try. My father always loved to crumple his cornbread and add it to a glass of buttermilk - I was always too much of a wimp to try it that way!

      I like to know about easy to make recipes ... like cornbread. Do you know, that an ex husband of mine required cornbread at every dinner? And, he liked it not sweet, but like his mama used to make.

      Love cornbread. I often make it for breakfast and put maple syrup on it.

      I like how simple this recipe is although I wouldn't use margarine since it's not as good for butter for you, and I think it's been proven to be really awful for your body. It's great for breakfast or dessert.

      Cornbread is important to our family - we had a lot of it growing up in Southwest Mo with my dad from Kentucky.
