Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven 425-degrees F. Place the eggs in a mixing bowl. Whisk together for 10 seconds or until blended. Add the remaining ingredients. Whisk together for about 15 seconds until combined. Spray a 10-inch glass pie pan with cooking spray. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, using a rubber spatula to scrape the bowl and then to smooth the top of the batter evenly. Bake on the center rack of the oven for about 25 minutes, until a cake tester comes out clean when inserted into the center. Cut into wedges and serve warm, either plain or with soybean margarine or good ole butter.


No special items needed.

Editorial Notes

The ingredient tips, suggestions, variations, facts, questions and answers below are not edits to the original author's recipe. They are not meant to imply any change would improve the recipe. They're offered for convenience, alternative ideas, and points of interest. If you have any comments about them, please post in the Help & Ideas forum.

  • When selecting fresh corn for this recipe, look for ears with bright green husks and golden yellow kernels.
  • If you don't have cilantro on hand, you can substitute with an equal amount of chopped parsley.

  • Substitute coconut oil for the peanut or vegetable oil - Coconut oil has a high smoke point, which makes it a great option for baking. It also has a mild flavor that won't overpower the other ingredients, making it an ideal substitute for this cornbread.
  • Substitute almond milk for the soy milk or regular milk - Almond milk is a great dairy-free alternative that is still packed with flavor. It is also lower in calories and fat than other milk alternatives, making it a healthier choice for this recipe.

Chocolate Chip Cornbread Follow the same instructions as above, but add 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips to the batter before pouring into the pan.

Spicy Black Bean Chili: A hearty chili made with black beans, tomatoes, and spices that pairs perfectly with the savory and sweet flavors of the Fresh Corn Cilantro Cornbread.

Chipotle Lime Avocado Salad: A light and refreshing salad made with crunchy romaine lettuce, creamy avocado, and a zesty chipotle lime dressing. It's a great accompaniment to the spicy black bean chili, providing a cool contrast to the chili's heat.


Q: How long should I bake the cornbread?

A: Bake the cornbread for about 25 minutes, until a cake tester comes out clean when inserted into the center.

Q: What type of pan should I use to bake the cornbread?

A: Use an 8-inch square baking pan or a 9-inch round cake pan. Grease the pan with butter or cooking spray before adding the batter.
