This cornbread recipe is the perfect side dish for chili, or any other comfort food. It's delicious, satisfying and you’ll love how easy it is to throw together.

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 30 mins
  • Yields: 16 - 2


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup and leveled-off

1 cup yellow cornmeal

1 tbsp baking powder

1 1/4 tsp salt

2 1/2 tbsp sugar

2 tsp finely chopped fresh thyme

3/4 cup frozen corn kernels (no need to thaw; just be sure they are not stuck together)

1 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese

1 1/4 cups milk

2 large eggs

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled


1Preheat the oven to 400°F. Spray a 9-inch glass or metal baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

2In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, sugar and thyme until well combined. Stir in the corn and cheese.

3In a small bowl, break up the eggs with a wire whisk, then add the milk and whisk to combine. Add the wet mixture and melted butter to the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until just combined. Do not overmix. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and smooth the surface with the back of a spoon or spatula. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until puffed and lightly golden. Cool slightly in the pan on a wire rack, then cut into pieces and serve warm.

4Leftovers can be wrapped in foil and reheated in a 350-degree oven for 10-15 minutes.
