  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Grease an 8-inch baking pan with butter or cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the corn meal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, beat together the oil, milk and egg.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before cutting and serving.



• For a richer flavor, use buttermilk instead of regular milk for the recipe.
•  If you like your cornbread a bit sweeter, add an additional 2 tablespoons of sugar.
• If you prefer a lighter, fluffier texture, reduce the amount of oil to 3 tablespoons.
