Real Corn Cornbread

6 Steps

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350°F.

  • Step 2

    Remove kernels from cobs of corn, reserve cobs. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Sauté corn in the butter until bright yellow and cooked (about 10 minutes). Season with salt then set aside in the fridge to cool.

  • Step 3

    In a medium saucepan, add cobs of corn and milk. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 5-10 minutes while corn kernels cook. Strain and set aside in the fridge. 

  • Step 4

    In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and cooled corn kernels. Stir so that kernels are separated throughout the mixture.

  • Step 5

    In a separate bowl, mix 4 tablespoons of melted butter, strained corn milk, oil and eggs. Add into the dry mix and stir until combined. Transfer batter into one large 9x13 dish. 

  • Step 6

    For a hard crust: coat the dish in butter or oil and place batter directly in. For less crust: line the dish with parchment. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until golden at the edges.
