Whole Kernel Corn Cornbread

Prep time 15 mins
Bake time 35 mins
Yield Makes 12 servings
True corn lovers are sure to gobble up this cornbread made with whole corn kernels rather than ground cornmeal alone.  The whole corn is blended with eggs, milk, honey, butter, flour, and cornmeal for a truly authentic cornbread batter that bakes to a beautiful golden brown.


  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup whole kernel corn
  • 1 cup 1% low-fat milk
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons light butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup oat bran flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

How to Make It

  1. Coat a 10-inch cast-iron skillet with oil, and place in a 400° oven 10 minutes or until hot.

  2. Process corn and milk in a blender or food processor until smooth. Add honey, butter, and eggs; process until blended.

  3. Combine flours and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Add corn mixture to flour mixture; stir just until combined. Pour batter into preheated skillet.
