Amish Corn Bread

Back with the Amish bread!  This time, it's corn bread!

The batter was very thin so I was skeptical. 

Also, the recipe that I had called for a 9 in. pan but all I had was an 8 in. pan. 

So this was a bit of an experiment and I wasn't sure how it would turn out. 

I pulled it out after 30 minutes and it looked gorgeous. I snapped a quick picture but then realized it wasn't quite done in the middle.  It needed another 5 - 7 minutes, tops. So I put it back in the over.  I started working on a science project with my son and forgot about the corn bread. It stayed in there for about 15 more minutes.


So it was overcooked. It still wasn't too bad though. I'm glad I snapped a picture of the top when it first came out as it was much darker 15 minutes later and not as pretty.

The inside was interesting.  The top 1/3 was lighter in color than the rest. Not sure if something separated or what. It tasted great so despite the flawed cook, I will totally make this again!!

Served with Firehouse Chili

  1. Interesting color separation, but I love corn bread, and need to get an Amish starter started!

  2. Yum, I love cornbread. That color separation actually looks really neat.

  3. Debbie that sounds very interesting. I am not sure if we can get cornflour, I must have a look. On second thought it may be the same as what we call in S. Africa, mealie meal and that I can buy here, in fact I have some in the house! Diane

  4. This looks great, I love the way you presented it!

  5. I tried making cornbread from my starter on Friday and it didn't come out as well and I had hoped. It wasn't bad but it was not as moist or fluffy as I was hoping. Yours looks a lot better than mine did.

  6. I never thought of making cornbread with the Amish bread starter. how cool!

  7. Mmmm, cornbread! I don't know that I'd trust myself with making that right now! Good thing my oven is currently broken!
