About the bake

Made in the USA, our Cornbread recipe is a quicker way of getting a taste of America than hopping on a transatlantic flight. Made using cornmeal, this bread has a unique texture and appearance, and despite being a sweeter dough is often enjoyed with savoury meals such as chilli or stews - a bit like cheese and pickle, the sweet and savoury really do work.

Feel free to add some colour to your cornbread, with a pinch of fresh herbs, or a sprinkle of chilli flakes - this is a really versitile bread to have as a staple in your bread baking recipe book. If you love bringing the taste of American to your kitchen be sure to give our Copycat Krispy Kreme Doughnuts a go, or give our Twinkies a try!
