Cornbread is a type of quick bread made of cornmeal and sometimes supplemented with wheat flour. Some variations may include whole corn kernels. It has its origins in America, with notable influence from Native American cuisines. It can range from sweet to savory, and recipes vary depending on the region and the cook. Cornbread is often eaten on its own, but it can also be used as an ingredient, such as in cornbread dressing or stuffing.
