5 Minute Microwave Cornbread

Rated as 4.43 out of 5 Stars
1

"It literally takes me 5 minutes to get this cornbread on the table--including absolutely all steps. I'll be honest--it tastes better baked in a regular oven. But it's still pretty darn good in the microwave, and sometimes I only have 5 minutes!"

  1. Mix the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt, egg, milk, and vegetable oil in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl.
  2. Heat in the microwave on high, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 3 minutes, rotating the bowl halfway through cooking if the microwave does not have a rotating tray.
