Advent Calendar Cookbook—Day 7: Sweet Cornbread

Recipe submitted by Sarah Wingo, Librarian for English Literature, Theatre, and Romance Languages & Literature


  • ½ cup butter (helps if you leave it out to soften for a bit before you begin).
  • 1 cup sugar.
  • 2 eggs.
  • 2 cups flour.
  • 6 tablespoons cornmeal (I will sometimes add a little more).
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder.
  • ½ teaspoon salt.
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda.
  • 1 cup milk.
  • ¼ – ½ stick softened butter to spread over top of bread after it finishes baking.


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Grease 9×13 pan.
  • Cream butter and sugar together until fluffy.
  • Add eggs to butter and sugar mixture.
  • In a separate bowl combine remaining dry ingredients.
  • Add combined dry ingredients into the sugar butter egg mixture.
  • Add milk.
  • Pour cornbread batter into greased pan.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes (will usually turn a slightly golden brown color).
  • Immediately after removing from over spread top of cornbread generously with soft butter (usually I will use just about ¼ – ½ of a stick of butter).
