Super Moist Corn Bread Recipe

Moist Corn Bread Recipe

My mom has always made the best corn bread.  It is super moist and has nice whole kernels of corn in it.  It’s perfect alongside chili or soup, and also makes a great breakfast all by itself.  Mom always made her cornbread with a starter of a Jiffy box mix, but this recipe starts from scratch with not much extra effort.  I also made the recipe as 4 mini loaves using my awesome new Sweet Creations Mini Loaf Pan.  Read more about this pan below.

Super Moist Corn Bread Recipe

1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 16 oz. can cream style corn
1 16 oz. can whole kernel corn, drained
1 c. Greek yogurt or low fat sour cream
3/4 c. butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat loaf pans with butter. Mix the the dry ingredients thoroughly. Then add oil, corn yogurt/sour cream and melted butter. Mix mixing lightly but thoroughly. Pour batter into 4 mini loaf pans. Bake for 40 – 45 minutes, or until top is just beginning to brown.  (Alternatively, you can pour into a 9×13 cake pan and bake approximately 40 minutes.)


As I mentioned, I made my loaves using the  Sweet Creations Mini Loaf Pan.   I have always wanted to be able to make little loaves – both because they are so cute and also because they are great for making gifts!!  This pan was nice and heavyweight with a nonstick coating that looks like it was built to last.  I can’t wait to make meatloaf in it tonight….I’ll share that recipe with you later!


good cook
