Hot Water Cornbread November 16 2018


View Hot Water Cornbread Recipe


A staple in Southern communities, Cornbread is served with any and all meals. Much different than Northern-style Cornbreads, which are typically more sweet and cake-like, Southern-style Cornbread is savory, crumbly, and perfect as a barbecue side dish. It's even one of our favorite things to eat with our Boneless Baby Back Ribs!





1 cup corn meal

3/4 cups boiling water

1/4 cup diced onions

1/2 Tbsp salt

2 tsps white sugar

1/2 Tbsp granulated garlic

1/2 Tbsp granulated onion

1 tsp brown sugar

In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients, add boiling water and shortening. Stir until shortening melts. 


Pour oil 1/2 inch in a large skillet and heat to 375 degrees. 


Shape corn meal mixture into flattened balls using a heaping tablespoon as a measuring guide. Fry each in hot oil, turning once, until crisp and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Serve at once with maple syrup or honey.


Serves 4-6
