I wanted to do a cornbread stuffing with my Texmex themed holiday turkey dinner and that meant that I would need some corn bread. Since I was making the corn bread anyways I could not resist playing around a little and I added some cranberries. Corn bread is a quick bread that is made with cornmeal and it is really easy to make. This corn bread came together quickly and easily. I could not resist having a piece just as soon as it came out of the oven. I topped it with some butter that quickly melted into the cornbread and a drizzle of honey and it was amazing! The tart cranberries went really well with the slightly sweet cornbread and the honey on top. The butter of course added a nice savoriness. With only one slice missing I now had my corn bread for the corn bread stuffing.
I used the leftovers to make corn bread stuffing with chorizo .
Cranberry Corn Bread
- 1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup cornmeal
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup cranberries (cut in half)
- Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl.
- Mix in the eggs one at a time followed by the milk.
- Mix the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt in another bowl.
- Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
- Mix in the cranberries.
- Pour the mixture into a greased 9 inch square baking pan.
- Bake in a preheated 350F/180C oven until a toothpick pushed into the center comes out clean, about 20-30 minutes.

Oooh, love this sweeter version of cornbread!!
Great Idea! I would definately try this1 🙂
I love sweet cornbreads. This looks beautiful!
Your corn bread looks light and airy.
That looks delicious, Kevs. I made cornbread the other day to go with my spicy chili. I like to put frozen corn in my cornbread, for moistness, but this cran version is great.
I am such a cornbread fan — sweet, savoury, dense, airy, with corn kernels inside or without, it doesn’t matter — but this, with cranberries, just may be the best looking cornbread EVER. I am a huuuuge cranberry lover. What a great idea — yum!
Oh, yes, I’ll have to make this. What a great idea with the cranberries.
never thought to add cranberry to cornbread but you had me at jalapeno corn bread!
Happy holidays Kevin!
Love cornbread and cranberries, and hot aout of the oven,,who can resist!
Well, I have had jalapeno corn bread, cheddar corn bread and green onion corn bread. Leave it to you to be creative. This would be good fried in a little butter and maybe some marmalade on top.

I like how this sounds. Sweet and slightly tangy cornbread? Why yes please.
The addition of cranberries is a great idea because it looks so good.
