Isabelle at Home's Unbelievable Cornbread

Unbelievable Cornbread

In honor of the holidays I am bringing back my very secret (!) and one of my first culinary creations: My Cornbread.

This was the very first recipe I posted on my blog.  Why am I bringing it back?  Simple; it never received the recognition it deserves.  Trust me when I tell you this corn bread is absolutely the best corn bread you will ever eat.  It is moist, flavorful and with just enough sweetness to blow your mind!

Not only was this my first post and by reading it you will notice how “green” I was, but I really didn’t talk (will I ever shut up!) enough about the loveliness of this recipe.  I left the original post , feel free to go check it out and compare….remember to be nice ;)

It’s fairly easy to make, if you know how to bake a cake then you can’t mess this up.

It uses real corn not just cornmeal.

It is moist.

It has cheese in it!

It makes a nice big pan of delectable cornbread.

It freezes well (although rarely do we have leftovers).

Once you make it, you will be assigned to make it over and over again.

take a closer look at this little marvel!


1 cup flour
1 cup corn meal
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

6oz of butter
1 cup white sugar
4 eggs
1 small jar of green chilies not drained (optional)
1 8.5oz canned corn drained (drained)
1 15oz canned cream of corn
1 cup shredded cheese (Mexican blend or sharp cheddar)
How to:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.  Butter an 8X10 pan.  Set aside.

In a medium bowl combine your flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt.  Set aside.

In your mixer cream your butter with your sugar.  Add your eggs and combine well.  Add your chilies (if using), cream of corn, corn and cheese.  At this point you will notice your mixture will look somewhat curdled but pay no attention, this is all good!  Finally add your dry ingredients and mix until just combined.  Pour into your prepared pan and bake in your preheated oven for 1 hour.

Simply delicious…but be warned, once you make it you will have to make it over and over again….often making 2 pans of this cornbread just so there is plenty for people to take home!
