This yeasted honey cornbread loaf is taking cornbread to a whole new level. Recipe developed in partnership with Red Star Yeast.
I’ve always been a cornbread fan. Whether from a box mix or from scratch, I don’t care as long as it is warm and slathered with butter. But in my mind cornbread has always been a little mundane. Delicious to be sure, but not exactly exciting.
Then one day inspiration for this recipe reignited my enthusiasm, and cornbread ceased to be boring.
It is exactly what it looks like— a light and airy loaf of bread meets sweet and corny cornbread. Traditional cornbread is a quick bread leavened with baking powder, but this loaf is leavened with yeast. It’s worked like all other yeast breads, mixed and kneaded by hand or a stand mixer, and left to rise and ferment before being shaped and eventually baked.
This yeasted cornbread is flavorful and fun. And its possibilities are endless. It would do well as toast or even as part of a sandwich, and don’t you fret, it can still shine as part of your summer barbecue spread.
