This moist and tender Southern-style buttermilk cornbread is a perfect addition to any meal.


  • 1 cup (150g) cornmeal
  • 1 cup (125g) all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup (250ml) buttermilk
  • ⅓ cup (83ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat oven to 400F and grease an 8×8″ pan.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center.
  3. Add the buttermilk, oil, and egg. Whisk all together until combined. Pour into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Best served warm.


Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the fridge for up to a week. Warm up in the microwave for 15-30 seconds before serving if desired.

This recipe can be doubled for a 9×13″ pan. Bake at 375F for 30-35 minutes.
