Homemade Cornbread is very simple to make and I love this recipe because it really is the perfect cornbread. Sometimes cornbread is really sweet and tastes more like cake, but this cornbread has a very subtle sweetness which just means you can add more honey on top, right? I’ve also had a lot of cornbread that is too dry – anyone else? This recipe is perfectly moist, but still a bit crumbly, just like cornbread should be.

Since my whole family loves honey on their cornbread, I like to poke holes in the cornbread right when it’s done baking. Mix some honey and butter together and drizzle that all over the top. Because of the fork holes, the honey butter will soak into the cornbread evenly and not just sit on the top. If you’ve never tried doing this, you’re missing out!

Ingredients for making cornbread from scratch

Ingredients in Homemade Cornbread

Flour – All purpose flour works great!

Sugar – Adds just the right amount of sweetness to the cornbread. Less than a cup for the whole recipe which makes a large batch (9X13).

Baking powder and salt- Don’t skip the baking powder and make sure you use the full amount! Make sure your baking powder is not old or expired because it won’t work as well.

Cornmeal – Can be found in the baking aisle near the flour. You can use either yellow or white cornmeal, but yellow cornmeal is a little bit sweeter and that’s what I prefer to use.

Eggs – This recipe uses 5 eggs!

Milk – I usually use regular 1% or 2% milk, but any type of milk should work fine. I’ve never tried using a dairy-free milk, but I would imagine it would work fine too!

Butter flavored Crisco – You can use regular shortening, but the butter flavored variety adds a bit of flavor and it’s what I prefer to use in most baking recipes that call for shortening.

How to make cornbread from scratch

How to make cornbread from scratch

Preheat oven to 350°.

In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cornmeal together.

Add the eggs, milk and shortening and use an electric mixer to mix until combined. You’ll have to mix for a minute or two to break up the shortening. There will still be little lumps of shortening, but as soon as all the larger pieces are gone and the shortening is mostly incorporated, stop mixing. You don’t want to overmix the batter.

Pour into a well-greased 9X13 pan and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. The cornbread should be a light golden brown on top. Make sure not to overcook the cornbread or it can start to dry out.

As soon as the cornbread comes out of the oven, melt together 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup honey. This is easy to do in the microwave. Poke holes in the cornbread with a fork and then drizzle the honey butter mixture over the cornbread.

What to serve with cornbread?

Cornbread pairs well with a lot of different meals, but we usually serve it with soup. You just can’t have taco soup  or chili without cornbread! Cornbread also pairs well with baked beans. It also works well as a side for barbecue! It goes perfectly with Grilled Spatchcock Chicken, BBQ Chicken…pretty much anything that goes on the grill!

Why did my cornbread not rise?

This recipe always rises perfectly, likely because it has a lot of baking powder in it! I’ve never used that much baking powder in a recipe before but it works! Just make sure that your baking powder is not expired. Also, make sure not to overmix the batter as this can cause the cornbread to fall as well.

Dutch Apple Bread is something I love any time of the day. I’ve always loved it! I have at least 4 recipes I’ve written already that are similar but I have to say, this one is my favorite! This apple bread has the best flavor and an almost pound-cake like texture- you won’t be able to stop eating it. I love how easy it is as well! Enjoy.

What apples can you use to make apple bread?

When you bake apple bread it’s a good idea to use a more robust variety of apple so that the apple holds up when baking. My favorite variety of apple to use is Honey Crisp. If you can’t find Honey Crisp apples or if they’re a bit too expensive, you can also use Fugi apples or Granny Smith apples. Try to avoid using softer apples like Red or Golden Delicious as they’re not ideal for baking.

I use a couple basic kitchen tools in this recipe that make baking apple bread much easier! First, I like to use a good bread pan. I bake a lot of bread and the pans I prefer are either aluminized steel or ceramic. Both types of pans will bake bread more evenly and release the bread more easily after baking. I’ve used glass pans in the past and it seems like my bread sinks too often when using them, so I stopped. I also don’t like using dark or nonstick pans because the bread cooks unevenly. It darkens on the outside before the bread is cooked on the inside, so it’s easier to burn.

I like to line the bread pan with parchment paper when I make sweet breads with a streusel topping like this one. It helps the loaf to be non-stick, even with sugar baked on top.

Dutch Apple Bread recipeHow to make Dutch Apple Bread

Best Bread Pan?

I bake a lot of bread and the pans I prefer are either ceramic, glass or cast iron. These pans will bake bread more evenly and release the bread more easily after baking.  I don’t like using dark or nonstick pans because the bread cooks unevenly. It darkens on the outside before the bread is cooked on the inside, so the coloring is uneven. Read more about which bread pan is the best here!

My Apple Bread sank. What happened?

This happens to me occasionally too! Often it’s because I’ve over mixed the batter. Quick bread (referring to a bread recipe that doesn’t use yeast) does not like to be stirred too much, so try to just barely mix all the ingredients together. Another culprit could be overfilling the pan. The bread pan should be only half full each time. As always, make sure your leavening ingredients- baking soda and baking powder- aren’t too old. Baking soda should only be on your shelf for 6-9 months before purchasing new. I purchase it in bulk (I bake a lot!) and refrigerate it to help it last longer.

Crispy Buffalo Roasted Chickpeas | Healthy Snack Recipe by Gordon Ramsay

Spicy Buffalo roasted chickpeas are a great healthy snack! You’ll love their bold, spicy flavor.

I’m back again with another spicy Buffalo-inspired snack recipe. Can’t stop, won’t stop. What more can I say? I hope you all like Buffalo sauce as much as I do!

This time, we’re making crispy roast chickpeas that are supercharged with bold, spicy flavor. If you know me, you know I’m a huge fan of roasted chickpeas. They’re a great healthy snack packed with protein and tons of crunch. 

If you love Buffalo wings, you’ll definitely love these!

Buffalo Roast Chickpeas

Since chickpeas have a pretty neutral flavor on their own, you can get really creative with seasonings. I’ve flavored them with everything from salt and vinegar to turmeric to lemon and za’atar. 

For this recipe, I spice things up with big Buffalo flavor. 

Start with your favorite hot sauce. For me, that’s Frank’s Red Hot. Maybe you have some leftover from making my low carb buffalo chicken dip or buffalo chicken lettuce wraps. Or maybe you’re like me and always have a bottle (or two!) in your fridge. 

Then, bump up the flavor even more by adding smoked paprika, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Did I mention these baked chickpeas are spicy? If you like spicy food, ½ teaspoon of cayenne is a good place to start, but if you can’t handle heat ¼ teaspoon of cayenne will be more your speed. 

Tips for Making Crispy Chickpeas

Drain and rinse your chickpeas, then dry them thoroughly with a paper towel. The drier you can get them the better! This will help the seasonings stick and will also help them get super crunchy. Any water that clings to the beans will steam in the oven, which can make the chickpeas soft. 

Spreading the chickpeas into a single layer will also help ensure they crisp up rather than steam. Use two baking sheets if yours are small. More space is definitely better!

Keep a close eye on the chickpeas as they bake – especially during the last few minutes. They can go from a delicious, crispy snack to a burnt mess pretty quickly if you’re not paying attention.

Can I Air Fry these Crispy Chickpeas?

Yes, totally! Air fry them at 370 degrees, shaking the basket halfway through.

I love making these in my air fryer, but the one downside is that you can’t fit as many in there as you can on a baking sheet. If you decided to air fry your beans, I recommend scaling the recipe down by half or working in batches. 

How to Eat Roast Chickpeas

This chickpea snack is great on its own. I eat them like popcorn! They’re also great on a salad. A bed of romaine hearts or iceberg lettuce topped with these shredded carrots, cucumber, Buffalo chickpeas, and blue cheese crumbles would make a great vegetarian alternative to Buffalo chicken salad! They’re also great sprinkled onto soup. These spicy chickpeas are especially great when used to cut through rich soups, like potato soup or creamy chowder. 

How to Store Crispy Chickpeas

Buffalo chickpeas will stay crispy for about a week when stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
