Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease a 9-inch square baking pan.


In a large bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.


In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, and melted butter.


Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Do not overmix; a few lumps are okay.


Pour the batter into the greased baking pan, spreading it evenly.


Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.


Allow the Classic Cornbread to cool in the pan for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Tips for this recipe

Enhance the flavor by adding ingredients like diced jalapeños, shredded cheese, or corn kernels to the batter before baking. Serve warm with a dollop of honey or butter for an extra touch of indulgence.
