  • 9x5x3 loaf pan


  • 1 1/2 cups cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup golden flax meal
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup sour cream or substitute plain yogurt or crème fraiche
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 large eggs room temperature


  • Preheat oven at 350-degrees. Line a 9×5-3 loaf pan with a parchment paper sling along the long side, with enough paper sticking up on each side to grip it.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together cornmeal, flour, flaxseed meal, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a big bowl, beat together oil, sour cream, honey, and eggs. Add in the dry ingredients until just mixed. Pour batter into the pan.

  • Cornbread keeps well for days well-wrapped at room temperature. It can also be frozen for later enjoyment.
