Whole-Wheat Corn Bread

There are dozens and dozens of cornbread recipes out there. Some people swear by Jiffy, others are firmly attached to their favorite aunt/grandma/second-cousin-once-removed’s version. There are Northern and Southern styles of cornbread, versions laced with corn kernels, jalapenos, cheese, and more. I don’t want to take away from your favorite version… I have no family recipe and I’m not tied any specific brand-name mix either. What I do have is a soft and moist bread housed in a crispy exterior that pairs the heartiness of whole wheat flour with soft, sweet cornmeal.

i ❤ silicone muffin liners!

This cornbread makes the perfect side dish for soup [may I suggest this or this, for starters?] and salad, or any light meal… just add a drizzle of honey and a pat of butter and call it a day. You won’t regret it… in fact, I think you’ll rather enjoy it!

  1. Mmmmm…I absolutely love corn muffins and haven’t made them in quite some time–I love your healthier version with whole wheat 🙂 My friend Anne e-mailed me her family’s recipe for “The Best Cornbread Ever,” and it truly was delicious, although it more closely resembled a sweet yellow cake…with a little corn mixed in 🙂


Thanks for visiting... I would love to hear from you!
