Amish Corn Bread

This was so quick and easily to make. It’s going to be part of my standby week day recipe.


What You Need

  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup corn meal
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup sour cream (I used light)
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 8×8 baking greased pan

Make It

  1. Evenly mix the dry ingredients (first 6 ingredients) together.
  2. Add egg, sour cream, milk and melted butter.
  3. Mix evenly. This will become a thick dough-like mixture.
  4. Pour into a 8×8 greased pan.
  5. Bake at 350F for about 25 minutes.


While I haven’t made it with these yet, I figured it would be yummy to stir in some corn kernels, jalapeno and/or cheese. I think it might also be a good idea to increase the milk gradually if I do so it doesn’t become too dry.


I was just sitting here thinking. To make this even faster to throw together. It might be a good idea to simply make up packets of the dry ingredients and store them in bags. Then all you need to do is add egg, sour cream and melted butter.
