This cornbread is made with coconut oil because it is healthier than vegetable oil and is said to help raise your good cholesterol. It does not change the taste of the cornbread.

  • Stir milk and cornmeal together so the cornmeal is completely wet; let soak for 5 minutes.

  • Stir flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl with a whisk; add cornmeal mixture, eggs, and coconut oil and stir until smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

I also add jalapeno peppers to one end of the cornbread for my daughter Amber Lynn who loves the spicy style of cornbread.

You could also make this into muffins by spooning batter into greased muffin cups.

A little on the crumbly side but absolutely delicious cornbread!! Great texture and taste. I halved the recipe and baked in an 8x8 pan it rose and browned beautifully and was delicious with some turkey chili. Read More

I did make this recipe but it came out like a flat pancake. I couldn't figure it out did I over mix it? I then checked the expiration date on my baking powder it was old. I will make it again with new baking powder. So to be honest I am not sure how to rate this recipe. Read More

This is a very good recipe!! Great taste! I baked mine in a cast iron skillet...I gave it 30 minutes but ended up taking it out in 25 min. I also cut the recipe in half and it didn't need the extra cooking time. Cooked perfectly! Thank you Texaslady for a very good recipe! Read More

Good moist cornbread a little crumbly. Everyone in my family enjoyed it including my oldest who wouldn't eat cornbread in the past. My husband liked it but it's not his favorite. I would definitely make it again. I did use sweetened vanilla almond milk in place of regular milk because of eating dairy free and that's what I had on hand. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. I myself enjoyed it with earth balance butter flavored spread and honey yum!!! Read More

Made it according to recipe. It was delicious. However it did taste and smell a lot like coconut. Fortunately I like coconut. Unfortunately i think there's too much coconut oil in the recipe. Altho healthier than other oils still we don't need that much oil. So I won't be making this again. Read More
