The Zojirushi bread machine has a cake setting. However, instead of giving a cornbread recipe the manual tells you to use a mix. I’m sure that works and would be great in a pinch. However, I tried my regular cornbread recipe in the bread machine. It turned out great!
This is wonderful along with a bowl of chili.
Cornbread Recipe for the Bread Machine
1 cup cornmeal
1 – 1/4 cup bread flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs – lightly beaten
1 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter or oil
Follow the instructions that came with your bread machine in terms of which ingredients to put in the machine first. Then select the cake setting with a light crust. If your machine doesn’t have a cake setting, use the quick bread setting.
We sliced the cornbread and froze what we didn’t eat. When we want a slice we just pop it in the toaster. It thaws and heats the cornbread all at once.
