Cornbread is a type of quick bread made of cornmeal and sometimes supplemented with wheat flour. Some variations may include whole corn kernels.




  1. Preheat oven to 425 °F (218 °C). Grease an 8-inch (20 cm) baking pan.
  2. Combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add egg, milk, and shortening.
  4. Beat until fairly smooth (about a minute).
  5. If using corn and/or onion, fold in these ingredients.
  6. Pour the mixture into the baking pan.
  7. Bake for 20–25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. If corn is added to batter, increase time by ~50%
  8. Serve hot!
