Easy Mini Cornbread Recipe (2024)

by Peter Block 12 Comments

My Easy Mini Cornbread Recipe was developed to be added to my THANKSGIVING CORNBREAD STUFFING. I made sure that I made plenty of batter so we could also enjoy the cornbread on its own. How cute are these mini cornbreads? I am fairly sure I saw the baking tin at Sur Le Table. When I saw it, I was not exactly sure when I would use it but I knew I would find ways to use it. Don’t you agree that this is a super cool way to serve cornbread as a side for your meal.

The cornbread recipe is pretty traditional. The dry ingredients are all purpose flour, corn meal, baking soda and baking powder. The wet ingredients are buttermilk, eggs and butter. Just like when you bake desserts, the wet ingredients and dry ingredients are mixed together. Then, poured into whatever baking vessel you plan to use. It is really that simple. But it is so good.

Cornbread recipes can be versatile. I have made a number of different cornbread recipes including a CORNBREADmade with non-fat yogurt; a PUMPKIN HONEY CORN BREAD; a JALAPENO CHEDDAR CHEESE CORNBREAD– I made this one so many years ago that I did not even remember making it – but it looks good and I will need to pull this one out again; and a CAST IRON SKILLET CORNBREADthat I have not made in a long time either. This recipe also included fresh corn colonels added to the batter. What I will now have to try to make is a gluten free version since I am joining my wife’s in her new diet regimen.

    Can you make this in two mini cast iron skillets you think?


    • Easy Mini Cornbread Recipe (11)Peter Block

      I would certainly think that would work. Let me know how it turns out?


  2. Easy Mini Cornbread Recipe (12)Lori mcAlpine

    Very frustrating thinking this is a recipe for cornbread in mini loaves which I specifically searched for and then to get to the last step to find out it goes in a skillet instead. You should change the title of the recipe. Also, the tag line under the title states: “This super cute mini cornbread loaves are the perfect side for any meal.” That should be removed because it is inaccurate.


    • Easy Mini Cornbread Recipe (13)Peter Block

      I am sorry for the confusion. As you can see from the pics, it is a recipe for mini loaves. I used my skillet cornbread recipe as the base. I will update the equipment so future readers will not be confused. Thx for stopping by the blog.


    • Easy Mini Cornbread Recipe (14)Dee

      I just made regular batter of cornbread. I divided into the mini loaf pan and baked for minimum time check after 15-20 insert when the toothpick comes clean in center done. Bake on temp your regular cornbread recipe calls for. Hope this helps.


      • Easy Mini Cornbread Recipe (15)Peter Block

        Thx for the input. I appreciate it.

    I would only like a recipe for 2 people. I made this recipe and it was to much for me and a friend. Could you help me.


    • Easy Mini Cornbread Recipe (17)Peter Block

      Pam, I have similar problems when I am only cooking for my wife and me. You can simple cut the recipe in 1/2. The other thing I do is freeze half of what I make. This recipe will freeze just fine. Make sure to wrap the corn bread tightly in either plastic wrap and then foil, or an airtight container.

    I would like to make this using my mini loaf pan. Want to double check on the baking time. 45 minutes seems a bit long for the mini loan pan.


    • Easy Mini Cornbread Recipe (19)Peter Block

      I am so glad you found this recipe. It has been a while since I made these so I do not recall. What I would do to play safe is check after 30 minutes. I would test in 2 ways. First, press down with a finger. There should be a little give. Also, do the old toothpick trick. Insert a toothpick in to the cornbread and if it comes out clean, it is done. If batter sticks to it, then it is not done. I hope this helps and let me know how it turns out for you.

    Sounds like a yummy recipe…however, your instructions reads as baking in a skillet while photos and recipe title says mini cornbread loaves.


    • Easy Mini Cornbread Recipe (21)Peter Block

      Yvonne, I did not catch that but I used the same recipe that I originally made in a skillet. I just liked the look using this new loaf tin I bought.
