Auntie B's Corn Bread

I learned about this recipe cooking dinner at Youth Without Shelter with the lovely staff at the Pinball Clemons Foundation. PCF goes to the shelter once a month to cook dinner. I have been lucky enough to join them a few times to make their famous Jerk Chicken Dinner. This Corn Bread is a youth favourite and I absolutely love it!


  • ½ cup butter

  • 2/3 cup white sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup buttermilk

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 cup cornmeal

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8 inch square pan.

  • Melt butter in large skillet. Remove from heat and stir in sugar. Quickly add eggs and beat until well blended.

  • Combine buttermilk with baking soda and stir into mixture in pan.

  • Stir in cornmeal, flour, and salt until well blended and few lumps remain.

  • Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  • Optional: I like to sprinkle some grains of salt and sugar on the top to create a little crust!

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
