  • 1 cup (120 g) yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup (140 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup (115 g) unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1/3 cup (67 g) packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) pure maple syrup or honey
  • ¼ cup (60 g) plain yogurt, at room temperature (see notes)
  • 1 cup (240 ml) buttermilk, at room temperature (see notes)
  • ½ cup bacon crumbles (optional add-in)


  • Preheat oven to 400° F (200° C). Grease a 9-inch cast-iron skillet or round cake pan well. Set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, add cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; whisk to combine well.
  • Make a well in the center of your dry ingredients and add melted butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, yogurt, and buttermilk. Mix just until the mixture comes together and there are only a few lumps remaining. Avoid over-mixing. Pour batter into prepared skillet or baking pan. Sprinkle with bacon crumbles, if using.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown on top and the center is cooked through, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Edges should be slightly crispy.
  • Allow to slightly cool before slicing and serving. Serve cornbread with honey, butter, jam, or whatever your heart desire.


STORE: Wrap leftovers up tightly and store at room temperature for up to 1 week.
FREEZE: freeze baked cornbread for up to 3 months. Allow to thaw overnight in the refrigerator and heat up in the microwave or  the oven at 300°F (150°C) for 10 minutes.
YOGURT: I recommend using regular plain yogurt. After a few testings, I found that Greek yogurt is too thick and doesn't have enough moisture.
BUTTERMILK: You don’t have Buttermilk? NO problem! Check how to make buttermilk substitute at home. 
MUFFINS: if you prefer to make muffins check out my Easy Eggless Cornbread Muffins recipe. 
GLUTEN-FREE: Make this recipe gluten-free by simply swapping out the all-purpose flour for a gluten-free baking blend.
