I make cornbread often but the other day I started mixing things up before checking we had all the ingredients. Nobody thought to take another bag out of the freezer when it got low so there was only a smidge of milk. There was some apple sauce so I subbed that in for the balance of the milk and boy howdy I baked up the best cornbread ever! Here's the recipe as I made it, next time I'm thinking about throwing in some roughly chopped apple since it was such a hit with the sauce flavour in there. It would be good with fresh corn kernels too, or even both corn and apples. And jalapeos, or cumin, cayenne, paprika, mmm. I used unsweetened sauce and it was plenty sweet enough but you can use sweetened or add 1 TBSP of sugar to the dry ingredients if you wish.

Golden Apple Cornbread:

Preheat the oven to 425F

1 cup cornmeal
1 cup flour (whole grain, white, or a combo)
1/2tsp salt
1 TBSP baking powder
1 egg
1 cup of milk and apple sauce, roughly half of each or to taste (combine these just before adding to flour to prevent any sort of reaction between the dairy and the fruit!)
1/4 cup melted butter (or oil of your choice or a combo)

Sift together dry ingredients.
Beat together egg, milk, and apple sauce and stir into dry ingredients.
Beat until smooth, adding butter partway through. Do not over beat.
Bake in a greased 8' square pan 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Cool before trying to take it out of the pan unless you're going to serve it warm straight out of the pan in which case it will likely be quite crumbly.

Thought I'd better put my oven where my mouth is and make some more cornbread with a few of those optional ingredients I mentioned. I mixed up a double batch, divided it and folded in chopped apples to 1/2, the other got garlic and onion powder, cumin, smoked and regular paprika, and fresh parsley 'cause I was out of dried.


Both are delicious, really good. Better than without the apple sauce, I will always include a sauce of some kind when making cornbread in future. I think mashed yam/squash &/or potato would be good too.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I'd love to try these for Thanksgiving in a few weeks Smiley  The applesauce and squash versions sound especially yummy.
