Today I’m sharing this Sour Cream Cornbread Recipe that I’ve been making for over 16 years now! It’s a versatile recipe that can be served with your favorite soup, chili, Mexican meal, or even breakfast! Having leftovers for breakfast is my favorite!
Cook’s Tools – Sour Cream Cornbread:
- 8-inch pan (I use this pan because it comes with a lid. It helps storing leftover cornbread so easy!)
- large mixing bowl
- large measuring cup
- small spatula (This is great for getting pieces of cornbread out of the pan. It’s also perfect for removing cookies from cookie sheets).
Sour Cream Cornbread
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg beaten
- 1/3 cup milk
- 4 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 cup sour cream 1/2 pint
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch square pan, and set aside.
- Whisk together the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
- Beat together the wet ingredients in a large measuring cup, and add to the dry ingredients. Stir until all of the ingredients are just combined.
- Pour into your prepared pan, and dot the top with small pads of butter.
- Bake 20-25 minutes until golden and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- Cool 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
