This golden sweet cornbread recipe makes perfect muffins for your everyday dinner or Thanksgiving side! 



Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup self-rising flour (optional, sift for fluffier results)
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted (one stick)
  • 1 large egg, whisked
  • 1 cup milk (if making casserole or skillet, add 1/4 cup)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease muffin tin, or 8″ casserole dish, or loaf pan, or 8″ cast iron skillet. 
  2. Mix dry ingredients until well blended.
  3. Whisk together melted butter, whisked egg, and milk. 
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Mix until fully combined. 
  5. Pour batter into pan of choice. Bake 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Top will have a golden appearance. 


The results can be dry with larger pans versus muffins. If making casserole or skillet, add additional 1/4 cup of milk for moisture.
