Yeasted Cornbread Loaf




I used to not be the world’s biggest cornbread fan, but this recipe, which I’ve made several times now, turned me around. The other day, I was thinking it would be fun to make a loaf of cornbread, rather than muffins or a pan. I wanted to use it to make sandwiches, but I figured the the cornbread recipe I normally use would be a bit too soft and crumbly.

I started looking around for recipes that were geared more towards loaves, and I came across this one for a yeasted cornbread. I’d never thought to make a yeasted cornbread before, so I went with it.

It turned out great! I feel like mine may not have baked up quite as high as I thought it would, but the dough definitely doubled both times, so maybe I was a bit deceived by the picture. This bread has a great cornbread flavor (though the corn flavor is not quite as prevalent as a standard recipe) and a really great texture, that’s somewhere between a chewy yeasted bread and a crumbly quickbread. It was very easy to put together, and makes a lovely grilled cheese. 🙂

  • Ohh what a good idea! I love cornbread, and this bread would great for pulled pork or BBQ chicken. yum! 🙂

    That looks very yummy, light, and delicious.

  • Did you just say corn loaf grilled cheese? Love that idea, I bet it was tasty.

  • I always wondered about a yeast corn bread! This is fantastic and I am going to try this soon.

  • I was so excited when you tweeted looking for a yeasted cornbread loaf because I LOVE cornbread but rarely make it since…I’d eat it like it was cake and then the whole pan would be gone in twenty minutes. But as a sandwich bread….I might be able to exercise some self control. this looks fabulous!

  • I am not a huge fan of cornbread either unless it involves lots of cheese so this is something I must try Elly!

  • What a great idea! I love cornbread in any form and have used it to make French Toast, but I think your loaf would work even better!

  • I’ve never heard of a yeasted corn bread, but it sounds delicious! Where in your store did you find the dry milk powder? I’ve never seen it before.

      Brianna, it should be in a box in the baking aisle!

  • Yeah, this sounds like it would be amazing for grilled cheese!

  • Interesting. I’ve never even considered a yeasted cornbread before. I’m completely intrigued!

  • Ooh! Now I want to try this yeasted version…looks scrumptious!

  • YUM! Now I usually swear by the simplicity and ease of your corn cakes but I might have to try this next time we’re having chili or ratatouille.
