Nothing beats a warm cup of chili and a slice of buttery cornbread for a pleasant meal. We have never had a poor loaf from our recipe, and our cornmeal makes a fantastic loaf that stays together. You don’t need any special tools or mixers because it’s so simple. Just a fork or spoon and a bowl. Try something different by mixing in some fresh corn kernels, a can of green chiles, or berries with the batter. You can even pour some local honey on top.



  1. Heat oven to 350 F for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Stir cornmeal and flour together.
  3. Mix in baking powder, salt and sugar.
  4. Stir in beaten egg and milk.
  5. Add butter, mixing well.
  6. Mix in apples or chilies.
  7. Place in a greased 8″ or 9” square pan, or a cast iron skillet
  8. Bake at 350 degrees, 25 minutes or when it’s brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Watch to see that it doesn’t overbake.
  9. Cool and cut into squares.
