Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 1 (9x9 inch) cornbread


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil, or any neutral flavored oil
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, optional


Grease a 9x9 inch baking dish with butter, and set aside. Preheat your oven to 350°F.

  • In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Whisk together to incorporate. Create a well in the center for the wet ingredients.
  • Add your egg, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract (if using) into the center of your dry ingredients. Starting from the center, whisk together your wet ingredients to break up the egg. Gradually work your way out to incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet. Mix until everything is combined and you no longer see any dry ingredient spots.
  • Pour your cornbread mix into your prepared 9x9 inch baking dish. Bake in the center of a preheated 350°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a deep golden brown on the outside and a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool slightly to room temperature before slicing and serving.
