HOW TO MAKE CORNBREAD 

This cornbread recipe is just as easy as making Jiffy cornbread. Plus, by making it from scratch, you know exactly what is going in it. (Read: no weird preservatives!)

In just 5 minutes, you’ll have this corn bread ready to pop in the oven.  Just toss the whole wheat, cornmeal, salt, and baking powder together. 

Then stir in milk (we use almond, but any milk will do), eggs, oil, and honey. 

Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 F (if using a large pan) and voila, you’ve got fresh, warm cornbread to eat. 

This slightly sweet corn bread is great as-is, plain Jane.

Or spread this amazing raspberry honey butter on top or add some homemade butter (made in a jar!)

CORNBREAD MUFFINS 

The recipe for this whole grain corn bread will fit perfectly in a 9×13 baking dish.  But muffins are also a great option if you want something done quicker. 

To make corn bread muffins, scoop the batter into a greased muffin tin. One batch makes about 24 muffins. Feel free to half the recipe if you only need 12. 

These muffins freeze well, so I recommend just making the entire batch and saving some for another time. 

I use this scoop for all my muffins and cupcakes, including these cornbread muffins to make sure they are all the same size, to ensure even baking.
