Hubby got most of this recipe from a book I gave him for his last birthday: The Cornbread Gospels Weeeellllll you know me and Hubby; can’t leave well enough alone. He pretty much disregarded the instructions and did it his own way. The ingredient change was buttermilk, and I think it made a world of difference.
We’ve tried other recipes in this book, and to date, this has been the only one we will make again and again. The creamed corn + the buttermilk makes for an extremely moist, tasty, and wonderful cornbread!
Note: There are tons of comments from people that the baking soda listed must be wrong. I will tell you, we made it as the recipe was written in that book. A lot of people have said it was inedible, but when they substituted baking powder, they loved it. Baking powder is going to make this rise a lot, so keep that in mind if you make the substitution.
The recipe is in this cookbook: The Cornbread Gospels.

could you use the cornbread mix in a box with the buttermilk and can cream corn.
sandy bell says
yes you can
Is it baking soda or baking powder?? Where ingredients are listed it says baking soda and the directions say baking powder. I really ant to make this but don’t want to mix them up, thanks!!!
I tried this recipe and the baking soda gives it an off taste – almost metallic. When I checked other cornbread recipes they call for baking powder and only a very small amount of baking soda.
I am so angry that I made the cornbread and had to throw it out because I did use the baking soda and it was unfit to eat. Horrible! You need to remove this post so other people aren’t making this mistake. Correct the error and repost please. Thank you.
I made this and it makes a very moist, buttery cornbread. If I make agains, I will probably use more sugar, it really was very savory with none of the sweetness traditional cornbread has.
Could the 1TBS plus 1tsp baking soda be an error? We ended up tossing the whole pan out because all you could taste was the baking soda. It sounds like a great recipe, just a huge amount of soda.
I’m sorry you didn’t care for it, Rebecca. As you can see from the link, it wasn’t my recipe. And like many others, we not only liked it, we loved it!

I tried the recipe and it looked good and smelled good but the baking soda was overwhelming.
i actually made this using baking powder on accident and it came out amazing! Same amounts just use baking powder. Then I went to make it tonight and used baking soda like the recipe called for and it was nasty! I could not eat a slice and the first time we are the whole thing! Couldn’t stop eating it! So I suggest subbing baking soda for powder and giving it another try!
What size pan did you use?
9″ skillet, April.
What size pan?
I made this cornbread tonight for a family dinner to go with lasagne and IT WAS FANTASTIC! After reading the comments, I did use the baking POWDER instead of the baking soda and it tasted delicious! We also like our cornbread on the sweeter side so I doubled the sugar to 4 TBSP. The flavour and texture was wonderful. I couldn’t find my cast iron frying pan and I’m pretty sure that not everbody owns one, so I used my 9″ metal cake pan and it baked perfectly! The edges and top were nice and crispy! This really is a terrific recipe but I STRONGLY suggest you use baking powder instead of baking soda (I’m pretty sure that is an error…) Other than that, I followed this recipe exactly. Thank you for posting this!

Loving the addition of creamed corn to cornbread. I bet it adds some sweetness and moisture. 🙂 I hope you can stop on by and share this or any other recipe with us on Five Friday Finds!
Looks and sounds yummy! Pinning this one! ~Rhonda
As a kid I loved creamed corn…now not so much. I think I could get behind this use for it though. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
This was awful because of the soda. Too much soda turns bread brown and this is what happened to mine. If I make it again I will use baking powder

Are you sure that it’s 450 for 20-25 minutes? I tried that and had to cut off the burned bottom. The rest was delicious.
You really need to change this recipe. I made it tonight and had to throw the entire thing away because of the baking soda error. It was not edible. I know you said you got the recipe somewhere else, but it is obviously an error and you really should change it on your blog before someone else makes the same mistake and has to throw away a whole pan of cornbread. It is very wasteful. I usually read reviews before I make anything, but I did not read the reviews on this before, and I am really kicking myself because the same thing obviously happened to many other people making this recipe
