This is seriously the BEST Cornbread recipe! Fill your house with the incredible smell of fresh homemade cornbread that is ready in 25 minutes. It is buttery, fluffy moist and so soft!


  • All purpose flour- 1 cup
  • Yellow cornmeal-1 cup
  • Baking powder- 2 tsp.
  • Baking soda-1 tsp.
  • Sugar- 1 tbsp, optional
  • Salt- 1/2 tsp.
  • Buttermilk-1 1/2 cup
  • Large eggs-2
  • Unsalted butter ( melted)-1/2 cup


  • Preheat your oven to 400 F/ 200 C with the rack in the middle of the oven.
  • Grease a 9-inch/ 23 cm baking dish/ cast iron skillet with butter. Alternatively, you can melt the butter for the batter in the  same skillet/ dish  on the stove ( for the skillet) or in the microwave (for the  baking dish) and allow to cool before adding to the batter.
  • Whisk together yellow cornmeal, all purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a large bowl.
  • Then, make a well in the centre and stir in buttermilk and eggs. Mix well to combine.
  • Finally , add  butter and mix again until combined.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared skillet/ baking dish.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on the top and edges are crispy. The toothpick inserted ( in the centre)  should come out clean. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before serving. Very hot bread tends to fall apart.
  • Serve cornbread with any soup, homemade almond milk, horchata or whatever you like.
