This is a great standalone recipe for corn bread but, you can also use it as a base recipe to create flavoured versions. Maple syrup! Jalapeño! Bacon Cheddar! Maple Bacon Jalapeño Cheddar! So many great options.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Polenta
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk


  1. Preheat your oven to 200c
  2. Grease a large pan or skillet

  3. Mix flour, polenta, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
  4. Make a well in the center of your dry ingredients and add the butter, milk, and egg. Combine the mixture should have the same consistancy as a cake batter.
  5. Pour the mixture into the pan/skillet and bake for 20-25 minutes until the top is a deep golden brown and test with a probe or knife. (if comes out clean its done.)

  6. Cornbread can dry our really quickly so its usually better to remove it when there is a few little crumbs of moist cake clinging to the knife rather than completely clean.
  7. Serve warm as a side. If you like, a little maple syrup blended into butter will really set this off.
