Golden "Company" Cornbread ~ Printable Recipe

"Ma rolled up her sleeves and washed her hands and mixed cornbread,
while Mary brought the wood and Laura set the table."
~ Laura Ingalls Wilder, Little House on the Prairie

This is our *all time family favorite* cornbread recipe which is so simple to make since you are placing everything inside one bowl (love those kind). It is hard to believe that I used to spend money on mixes! Here is how we prepare it:

"They talked about spareribs, and turkey with dressing, and baked beans,
and crackling cornbread, and other good things."
~ Laura Ingalls Wilder, Farmer Boy

Place in a large mixing bowl the following dry ingredients (then stir):
  • 1 c. Organic cornmeal
  • 1 c. whole wheat flour
  • 2 c. all purpose flour
  • 3/4 c. sugar (You can also get away with using 1/2 c. sugar but it is not as sweet or 1/2 c. honey can be substituted but cornbread will be more dense.)
  • 2 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt 

Once the dry ingredients are stirred, add the following:
  • 1/2 c. oil (We use sunflower or grape-seed oil.)

  • 4 eggs

  • 3 c. milk (I used the same glass container for the oil so pardon the weird oily milk look.)

Stir all ingredients together until smooth with a wire whisk to break up any clumps.

Pour mixture into a greased, 9 by 13 inch pan. Place in a preheated oven at 350 degrees and bake for approx. 35 minutes. When toothpick in center comes out clean (and top is golden brown) then it is ready. Let it sit a few minutes prior to serving to make sure the cornbread has set.

Note: Cornbread goes great with beans for a frugal and filling meal.

"In the middle of the table she set a milk-pan full of beautiful brown baked beans, and now from the oven she took the square baking-pan full of golden corn-bread. The rich brown smell and the sweet golden smell curled deliciously together in the air."
~ Laura Ingalls Wilder, Little House on the Prairie
