Cornbread recipe.

I made this shit yesterday and everyone was like ‘oh this is pretty good, upload your recipe for us online’. Or that’s kind of what my brain said. Most people seemed to enjoy it, so here it is;

First of all, it was a slight variation of this dish;

So, if you want the authentic experience use this recipe above. I cannot comment on the taste.




280g of Cornflour/meal (use maize flour if can)

130g of Flour

10g caster sugar

10g brown sugar

3 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp bicarb

1/2 tsp sea salt (or whatever)

1/2 tsp of spice (I used a mixture of black pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger)


300g mashed potato (sweet potato, normal, or a mixture of both. Carrot could be an alternative, or any other sweetened root vegetable)

4  whisked medium eggs (or about 3 if large)

300ml sour cream

30g honey/syrup/treacle

125g butter.



1. Set oven to Gas 5/190/170 fan. Might need to tweak temperature during cooking.

2. Mix all dry ingredients in large bowl.

3. Mix all wet ingredients in another bowl until smooth-ish. Incorporate wet ingredients to dry until well mixed.

4. Pour into bread tin or whatever equivalent is at hand, it really doesn’t matter. Bake for around 40 minutes, then check whether the inside is done with a knife. Leave to cool in oven, for about 2 hours. (Cooling is optional)



Oven times can vary ridiculously, so the best thing to do is keep an eye on our bread whilst it is cooking. If starting to brown on top and the centre is still raw, place at top of oven at a higher temperature (gas 6, 180 fan) for a short period of time (~2 minutes), still continuing to keep an eye on the crust to prevent burning.(may not be suitable, use at own discretion)

If just cooked, the above cooling option will allow the centre to cook for longer without burning the top. Either way, expect a dense bread that will be stubborn to cook in the middle.

DO NOT WORRY IF YOUR BREAD BURNS. It happens to us all. Wipe the tears, then start again.
