Tender corn cake!

Tender corn cake, also known as cornbread, is a classic American dish that features a moist and tender crumb with a slightly sweet flavor from the cornmeal. It’s a versatile side dish that pairs well with savory dishes like chili, barbecue, or fried chicken.

To make tender corn cake, you’ll typically start by mixing together dry ingredients such as cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, you’ll whisk together wet ingredients like milk, eggs, and melted butter. The wet ingredients are then combined with the dry ingredients until just mixed, being careful not to overmix, which can result in a tough cornbread.

The batter is poured into a greased baking dish and baked in a preheated oven until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Some recipes may also include additions like corn kernels, cheese, or jalapeños for added flavor and texture.

Tender corn cake is best served warm with a pat of butter and a drizzle of honey. It’s a comforting and satisfying dish that is sure to be a hit at any meal.


  • ½ cup of liquid milk (245 ml)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ⅛ tsp baking soda
