Marie Callenders Cornbread

My family really likes cornbread. I like it too, but I like it northern style. I did not realize that cornbread had a northern version and a southern version until I moved to Oklahoma. I had no idea that it made much difference how it was made, but there is.

So, for those of you from the more southern states. I am sorry. I like my cornbread a little lighter than you. I like a little more flour in my corn bread than you do. I also like a little sugar in it. I now, how could I! 🙂 All I can say is, I grew up in Oregon. We like our cornbread light and fluffy and a little on the sweet side. If you put a little honey on it, it is even better.

I will admit though that southern style cornbread is pretty good. But to me it is a little dry to just eat on it’s own. But that is just me. I know many people who wouldn’t make cornbread with sugar in it.

How do you like your cornbread? Do you have a favorite recipe?

This is my favorite cornbread to make. I have another one I also like, but I think this is my favorite. This recipe came from the book “Top Secret Restaurant Recipes”. The same recipe is also on Recipezar. I have been making this recipe for several years. I made it one time when my mom was visiting and now this is the only cornbread she makes.

  1. Oh, I love cornbread! When I lived in Atlanta, I purchased a cast iron cornbread skillet (it’s a round skillet sectioned into many triangles). I’ll have to try this recipe in it soon!

    Thanks for participating in my Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange. I sure do appreciate it!

  5. I love cornbread! I’ve only made it from a mix, though. When I was a kid we always ate cornbread with butter & syrup on it. Not knowing any different, I am surprised that I haven’t found anyone else who eats it that way. LOL 🙂

  6. I have been making this recipe for years, ever since I received the cookbook it is contained in for Christmas. I receive compliments every time.

    With the ‘net, I am not much for cookbooks anymore. But this cookbook is money well-spent and contains quite a few recipes that are excellent.

    I, too, am from up north (NY) and now live in Tennessee. My receipe is like yours except I add about 1/4 cup of tapioca and a half teaspoon of lemon extract. The tapioca makes it very moist.

  8. I just tried Marie Callendar’s cornbread mix. It was a WTF moment. I am from the southeastern United States and we always delicious & fluffy cornbread. Needless to say, I threw the MC bread in the trash. It was dry & heavy!

  1. […] I was recently determined to adapt my favorite northern style cornbread to be gluten free. It was actually pretty easy to adapt and turned out very well. My whole family […]
