Cranberry Corn Bread Recipe

Cranberry Corn Bread Recipe

During the holidays, I make several pans of this sweet cake-like corn bread for family and friends. Whole blueberries--coated in flour--can be used in place of the cranberries.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:9-12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup cranberries, halved

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs; mix well. Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt. Add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Fold in cranberries.
  • 2. Transfer to a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Bake at 375° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm. Yield: 9-12 servings.
