Here on the frontier, There are falling leaves, Although my neighbors are all barbarions…And you? You are a thousand miles away. There are always two cups on my table.

This is a delicious recipe for cornbread made without cornmeal!

It’s a little bit sweet and very yummy made with whole kernal corn.

You will need:

– 1 (15 ounce) can of whole kernal corn              – 1/2 cup of milk

– 1 1/2/ cups of flour                                                   – 2 large eggs

– 1/2 cup of sugar                                                         – 1/4 cup soft margarine

– 1 tablespoon baking powder                                 – 1/4 cup of honey

– 1 teaspoon salt

Stir the dry ingredients in a small bowl.

In a larger bowl beat the eggs, milk, honey, margarine and corn.

mix the 2 bowls together.

Pour into a greased deep dish pie pan or an 8×8 inch baking pan.

Bake at 400 F for 25 minutes or until the top is  golden.

I have never much liked cornbread myself but had a few cans of corn to use up so was inspired to develop this recipe.

It’s so good!

Sweet enough to stand alone as a dessert or a side dish to a meat meal.

Peace out.

  5. That’s brilliant!

    I am a lot more tempted to try this one out than I have ever been with a normal cornbread recipe. Loving the little yellow nuggets throughout the bread!

    I was making ribs for dinner and corn bread popped into my head as a side. But I didn’t have any cornmeal on hand. I jumped online and foun your recipe. It is delicious! The only difference was I used whole wheat flour! Thanks!

    • Great idea! I love the healthier alternative. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

      So glad to read this because Whole Wheat flour is all I have and need to make this today!! Not much of a cook but I have a dinner I am going to so I pray like crazy that I can make it!!
      I posted a question about the corn ~ I figure it needs to be drained? I am also kinda wondering if it would be ok to use cream style?

        I forgot to say I want to notified of follow-up comments since I am hoping for an answer!!

  12. Thanks for this recipe. I actually followed all the steps but mine was salty. Not sure what went wrong but i’ll omit the salt next time.

  14. Danielle said:

    Love this, I had everything in my pantry to make it! Mine turned out a bit salty too, should it be one teaspoon instead of tablespoon?

  15. Anonymous said:

    I am no cook at all but am guessing the canned corn should be drained before used!? I am hoping to have this come out well for a dinner gathering this evening.

  16. For certain drain the corn. I am not sure creamed corn would work but I would try it as an experiment.Sorry so many are turning out salty one level tablespoon is actually what I use but certainly reduce that if you prefer less salt!

    • Anonymous said:

      I figured and thankfully I did drain it!! All cooked and waiting to be sampled by guests!! 🙂
      I will experiment with the creamed corn next time as long as it is for my home!!
      I did reduce the salt because I have to be careful of it anyway!
      Thanks for sharing this!!

    Thanks for the recipe! Was craving corn bread but did not have any corn meal. My mom always added sugar to her corn bread too! Only thing-I could not even force myself to add a TABLESPOON of salt- I hope this was a typo :-). I added 1/2 tsp of salt instead.

    • Many have commented on the tablespoon of salt in this recipe. Because of this I have altered the recipe to read one teaspoon. I apologize for any salty corn-breads out there. Be sure to try using our super summer’s abundance of fresh corn. Just pop a couple of ears into the microwave for a few minutes. shuck them, cut off the kernals and use them in place of the canned version. Awesome.

  18. This is one of the only recipes I’ve found for corn bread w/out corn meal! Trying it tonight! I’ve read so many blogs that said it was impossible to make corn bread w/out the corn meal! Thanks for making the impossible….possible!!! 🙂

  19. I did not have any more Jiffy in the cupboard, and I have no cornmeal in the house, so your recipe was just what I needed … My son really loved it.

  20. This was good but I would make it in a larger pan. The sides were getting dry before middle was done. Otherwise I loved it.

  21. I am trying it right now. Add chocolate shavings and use butter instead. We’ll see.

  22. I Also added one whole Jalapeno to the recipe! For me it didn’t turn out spicy but a great flavor! This recipe is super, i would recommend this for any family dinner!

  23. I’ve been spreading this recipe around to everyone I know who’s interested. This is the best corn bread recipe I’ve found and so easy to make! Everyone who’s had it loves it and I hope many more people will enjoy this recipe as much as I did.

      You are so right. This recipe is too awesome. I have never made cornbread without cornmeal. I actually made this recipe and it is awesome. My family loves it and so do I. I don’t think I’m going to use cornmeal anymore. I’m going to use real corn for my cornbread from now on. I have a grand baby whose going to turn 2 years old May 15th, 2013 and the corn inside the cornbread is good for her because at this age it helps her to be nutritious and actually this recipe is a very nutritious meal in itself because of the veggie in it.

      Normally when I cook I always like to cook vegetables with every meal to make the meal more nutritious and at the same make it taste good so my grand baby will eat it. That’s just the way this recipe is nutritious and good all at the same time. Wow how awesome.

  24. LaRhonda Smith. said:

    I did not have any cornmeal and I wanted some cornbread so bad because I had made a pot of chicken noodle soup and cornbread tastes so good with the soup. I got on the internet and looked up some recipes on how to make cornbread without cornmeal. I ran across your recipe and I immediately made your cornbread recipe. Wow it’s awesome. I let my family members taste test it because we had never had cornbread without cornmeal. They loved it. I also tasted it and it’s great. I want to thank you so much for sharing this. This recipe would be great to make dressing with for the holidays. Thank you so much.

  25. LaRhonda Smith. said:

    Do you have anymore awesome nutritious and great tasting recipes? You are an excellent experimenter with food. I would love to try more of your recipes if you have any more.

  27. I am so happy you are enjoying this recipe. Tonight having sesame chicken while watching patriot/raven game. Be sure to check that yummy recipe.
    Peace out

    • LaRhonda Smith. said:

      I sure will try the sesame chicken recipe. It sounds delicious. Do you have it on wordpress?

  28. hey! im going to try this for dinner to go along with my chili, thanks for the great idea!

  29. Check out my blog. I have a recipe that I think everyone would enjoy.

  30. This is THE BEST CORNBREAD EVER!!!!!! I had it with chili, and my whole family loved it!!! Gmom, YOU ROCK!!! 🙂

  31. I am trying this with fresh corn from the garden that I froze last fall, and making it on the wood stove… wish me luck!, should be great to go with the homemade chili I have already made on the wood stove earlier

  32. Super easy recipe! Had it with homemade chili and we all loved it! I even cut the sugar and honey in half along with one tablespoon less of butter and it was still wonderful. Thanks; this one’s a keeper.

  33. I was hunting for a corn bread recipe with out corn meal (I think it always makes a really dry bread) and I found your site. Thank you for the recipe. It sounds easy and I’m going to be making it tonight to go along with our Chili supper. It’s cold here in Northwest Indiana and we need a hearty meal today. They are predicting snow this P.M. and all day tomorrow so a nice warm piece of corn bread with a hot bowl of chili is in the making. Thanks again!

  34. THANK YOU!! I made this last night and my family loved it! I didn’t drain the corn and my husband commented on how moist it was! 🙂

  35. Just finished making these and they’re absolutely delicious! Thanks so much for an awesome recipe!

    Do i need to drain the juice off the corn

  37. Hi thanks for stopping by. You do drain the liquid off canned corn. Hope you had a great 4th. Gmom and Hoo watched fireworks from
    The roof of the house. Awesome.

  38. This website is great 17b73e6bee36ad326a189837e09268ae


  40. I made this tonight with red beans and rice. It was a little too sweet for my liking. reminded me of cake instead of corn bread. But it was still really good! I used left over corn on the cob instead of the canned, and I put the wet ingredients into my ninja to puree up the corn a little bit. Next time i’ll cut the sugar in half or completely, i think the honey and the corn might be enough for me.

  41. i used your recipe as a guide and modified in these ways:
    12oz fresh off the cob corn pureed and heated on medium until golden plus a cob’s worth of fresh corn mixed in with a jalapeno (no seeds) i used brown rice flour to make it gluten free and used bananas instead of egg (1 ripe banana per egg) and i used maple syrup instead of honey. took a little longer to bake but turned out a beautifully. its supposed to be cooling and untouched but i keep spooning up warm bites. yum

  42. I made this for dinner tonight. I love it! I didn’t have honey so I used Agave Nectar instead. I also used butter instead of margarine. Came out great!!

  43. I am making this for dinner tonight to go with a chowder. I made it last month to go with chili and it went over so well both my 19 and 6 year old son’s begged me to make it again. Thank you!

  44. Followed all directions, but I made muffins instead of one large bread. They turned out perfect! So sweet, moist inside, and slightly crunchy on top. Honestly, I think they were the best corn muffins ever! I just want to mention, though, that the recipe doesn’t mention that the can of corn needs to be drained.

  45. Could you Write it in grams?

  46. I tried it, creaming the corn. Delicious!!!! Thank you so much!

  47. I am not one to comment on cooking sites. I tried this, but ended up using frozen sweet corn instead, and it was still incredibly moist and very tasty. Thanks for the recipe.

  48. loved this! I made muffins and they were awesome! I also used cream corn instead of whole kernel corn and they were great

  49. […] Country Strong and Nashville. so i decided to make chili and cornbread. i got the cornbread recipe online and it was pretty good – although it took longer to bake than the recipe said (i kept […]

  50. My mom was a little skeptical at first since she is an old fashioned country cook. She is now a believer. This is the best cornbread I have ever had. Thank you for the recipe.

  51. I tried this recipe today with Sunday dinner.. It was awesome!!! Kids forgot I even made a cake.. Thanks for sharing.

    i actually added cream style corn instead of of whole kern corn and also added some jalapeno and cheedar cheese it came out spectacular.

    Made with fresh corn and reduced sugar and salt to 1/4 cup and 1/2 teaspoon respectively. Cooked in 20 minutes and turned out delicious. Thank you for the recipe!!!

  54. Love the idea of cornbread without the need of cornmeal! Just made a big pot of chili and it definitely needed this on the side! Thanks for sharing!!

  55. This was quick and came out moist, tasty, golden and aromatic! Yum. I used 1/2 tsp salt and 1/3 c sugar, no honey. Added a pinch of nutmeg. I served alongside three-bean chili. Thank you!

  56. Thanks for the great recipe, so tasty! I reduced it to 1/3 cup sugar, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 cup maple syrup instead of the honey (what I had on hand). I did boil 2 cups frozen corn and purée it, so you don’t see the corn for the picky eaters.

  57. I just made this recipe, from the moment I cut it and saw the knife slide through, I knew this was a winner! I followed the recipe as written. The only difference was that I blended the corn into a liquid. Soft, buttery, sweet but not like a cake. I’m printing this recipe to add to my small collection. Thank you so very much!

    thank you for sharing this recipe…it launched me off to make a variation:
    1) a combo of coconut flour, carbalose and pastry flour to reduce some of the carbs
    2) substituted Swerve for the sugar but left the honey alone
    3) used two fresh, boiled, ears of white corn
    4) one extra egg because coconut flour absorbs liquid more

    Right now it is baking and smells heavenly in the house. I’m not a fan of commercial corn meal so your recipe was just was I was seeking. All the above great reviews lead me to believe this will make for a nice side dish tonight with our chicken 🙂

    I made this years ago (from an online source, but don’t remember where- could have even been here)… My family LOVED it… but then I couldn’t find again…. Today, I found again, but now I can’t pin it and that makes me sad…. Great recipe though! Trying it today with a gluten free flour mix, as we’ve recently found out my hubby is gluten sensitive…

  60. I’ve made this several times. It is absolutely delicious and I always get raves for it. It’s a bit on the sweet side and very moist. I do not change a thing with this recipe.

  61. […] never even tasted.  Since I don’t have any cornmeal handy, I’ll be going with a recipe that calls for flour and corn […]

  62. What i don’t understood is in truth how you’re no longer really a lot more smartly-favored than you might be now. You’re very intelligent. You already know thus significantly in the case of this matter, produced me individually imagine it from a lot of numerous angles. Its like women and men are not involved until it is one thing to do with Lady gaga! Your individual stuffs great. At all times deal with it up!

  63. Thank you so much for this recipe, we had no cornmeal but had some whole kernel corn stalks, used 2 of those and it came our perfectly!!

  64. Years later to comment but better late than never. I’ve been using this as a party and family dinner fan favourite ever since I found it maybe 4 years ago… Thank you!
