Servings: 8 servings
Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 30 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

2   eggs
1 cup cream-style corn, see Cook’s Note*
3/4 cup self-rising flour
1 cup self-rising cornmeal
1/2 cup vegetable oil, plus 1/4 cup for greasing pan
1 cup sour cream
1 cup grated sharp cheddar, optional
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional





Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Generously season a cast iron skillet with up to 1/4 cup vegetable oil. Preheat the pan either in the oven or on the stove over medium-high heat.

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl, stirring with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until combined. Pour batter into the preheated cast iron skillet. Place skillet in the oven and bake until golden brown, approximately 30 minutes. If making individual size cornbreads in smaller pans, they will require a shorter cooking time.

* Cook’s Note: Frozen creamed corn is sold in the frozen vegetables section of most grocery stores. It is much better than using canned corn.

Since moving to NM I must have green chile so I use green chile sourcream instead of plain and omit the cayenne, then add some canned green chile too. Its fantastico!

Paula, can you tell me where I can find flaked hominy? I know someone from Georgia surely must know if there's a place that sells it. Thank you, love your recipes

I never had corn bread in my life and only ever heard of it in movies. So, knowing that I wont be able to find it anywhere in Australia, I thought why not make my own! So I came across this recipe because it had more ingredients! The results were perfect! sometimes I add bacon bits but I think its good the way it is but with lotsa cheese! thanks Paula smile

This is wonderful!!! I like my cornbread a bit sweet, so I added 1/2 cup of sugar and skipped the cheese. Also, I baked it in 24 muffin tins for 20 minutes.

This is my absolute favorite corn bread recipe. A friend of mine made it for me after I had my second child, and I think I ate most of it in the middle of the night during night time feedings! I love this recipe when it is just barely done and the center is warm and "custard-y". I think I'll go make some now...

This recipe is a hit in my house! Everybody loves it! Canned cream-style corn works just fine and I always add the cheddar.
