Corn Bread Recipe from Whispering Pines Bed and Breakfast

For years I have been searching for a corn bread recipe that reminds my husband of his childhood memories. Well move over Paula, but I recently discovered Bill’s Aunt Leota’s recipe tucked into a very old cookbook. Bill was ecstatic – this is the corn bread he always talked about.

Yesterday was another snow day at Whispering Pines Bed & Breakfast, so I secretly got all the ingredients together and surprised Bill with warm corn bread, soft whipped butter and pure untreated honey that we buy from a local producer. He savoured every bite as we enjoyed the falling snow over Atwood Lake.

I thought I would share this old recipe with you. The only change I made was using butter instead of Crisco. I hope you have a chance to make this and to let me know your comments.

Sift together in a large bowl:

1 c. flour
1 c. corn meal
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder


1 c. buttermilk
3 T. butter, melted and cooled
1 egg, slightly beaten

Mix until just combined.  Pour into an 8 x 8 buttered pan and bake for 25 minutes at 375.

Happy eating!

Hope to see you soon,
Whispering Pines Bed & Breakfast

  1. Thanks very much for posting. I very much enjoyed this recipe, and will use it again.

    I was getting bored with my regular recipe, and tried a few of the other ones that I found on the internet.

    This is by far the best!
