A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent

Yummiest Cornbread

Just before diwali sometime I saw this cornbread from Nandita of SaffronTrail and it positively looked very very yum so I decided to try my hands at it. I love the slightly nutty flavour of corn in anything and I am glad I did because when she says the best ever cornbread I agree with her… it was just divine


What I used

  • cornmeal or Makkai ka atta or maize flour – 1 cup
  • whole wheat flour flour – 1/2 cup
  • baking powder – 1.5 tsp
  • salt to taste
  • sugar – 1 tsp
  • buttermilk – 1 cup
  • olive oil – 2tbsp
  • large eggs – 2 nos
  • milk – 1/2 cup
  • flax seed powder – 1 tsp
  • frozen corn kernels – 1/4 cup
  • fresh coriander leaves chopped a handful
  • jalapenos chopped – 2 tbsp
  • cumin seeds – 1 tsp


How I made it

  • In a bowl mix and sift all dry ingredients i.e flours, salt, sugar, flaxseed powder and baking powder together
  • In another bowl whisk all the wet ingredients together i.e eggs, buttermilk, milk and oil. Whisk till well blended
  • Now mix the wet ingredients in the dry ingredients just till incorporated.
  • Add the jalapenos, corn kernels, coriander leaves. Like Nandita I also added a few spoons of brine of the jalapenos here.
  • Pour in a greased loaf tin. I also lined the tin with aluminium foil as I find the loaf easy to remove if its lined and I had run out of baking/parchment paper
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 200C for about 20 minutes or so till a skewer comes out clean from the centre
  • We had it with spicy green chutney and tomato sauce and a tall glass of orange juice. Perfect for breakfast

    That looks yum are seriously into so much baking!,.can’t we just use the flaz seeds and bake this instead of including those eggs?..naturally the texture will not be so soft..but what do you think?

      Hi Srivalli
      I read/watched on that 1tbsp Flaxseeds mixed with 3tbsp of water can be used to substitute one egg for cakes..and increase the quantity depending on the number of eggs the cake calls for.I havent tried it myself but usually their tips work like a breeze..:)..Lovely yummy bread Monica!
