And stir just until everything is moistened. You don’t want to over stir the batter because that can develop the gluten in the flour and make the end product a little rubbery, so it’s okay if there are a few lumps. No need to stir until everything is completely smooth.
Fill Dish with Cornbread Batter
Spread the batter into your prepared dish and bake for about 40-45 minutes, or until the top and edges are golden brown. The exact baking time may vary slightly based on your dish and your oven.
Why is my cornbread crumbly?
Ugh, isn’t overly crumbly and dry cornbread just the worst? If you’re experiencing just a little bit of crumble, that’s normal. It shouldn’t be true bread consistency, but it also shouldn’t be totally dry and feel like wet sand. Using too much cornmeal is one way to dry it out, so don’t skip out on the equal portion of flour.
Homemade Cornbread Recipes
Like most quick bread recipes (such as Banana Bread) you’ll want to ensure you mix the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet in another. When you combine the two, mix just until moistened. Overmixing can cause a dry, tough cornbread. Also ensure you don’t overcook the bread. Check it at the lower end of the cook time.
