A few weeks/months ago I found some Bob’s Red Mill Corn Flour on clearance at Sprouts. If I’ve ever purchased corn flour, it was many, many moons ago. I have no recollection of it. For a couple bucks, it sounded like something I could take a chance on. I’m so glad I did!

The package suggests substituting corn flour for corn meal in your recipes to add richness. I used it in place of some of the regular flour in my Buttermilk Corn Waffles as well as in my favorite Buttermilk Cornbread recipe.

(Yes, we are sweet cornbread fans. This is California. That’s how we roll. ;)

Since we’re currently avoiding processed sugar, I used honey in the recipe and milk instead of buttermilk in my original version. We really like it this way. The kids said it didn’t need any additional honey on top. Yay!

The added corn flour, while not “cheap” does change the texture and flavor of the bread. I am keeping my eyes peeled for another sale.

  1. I sub corn flour for 25% of the wheat flour when I make cornmeal pancakes,cornbread, etc. It really punches up the corn flavor. We prefer the Bob’s Red as well. Store it in the freezer, it seems to go bad quickly (well, three months) at room temp.

  2. Well I don’t know where I was when you post this, but this is the best corn bread I’ve ever made. I usually use Alber’s recipe (from the back of the cornmeal box), your recipe has so much more flavor than theirs. I think the whole wheat flour I subbed for the unbleached AP flour goes very well with the honey (just like honey whole wheat bread), so tasty. And thanks for coming up with a recipe to help me use up my corn flour. I ordered 25 freakin’ lbs from Azure about a year and a half ago, thinking it was masa mix. Well it clearly wasn’t, I was not happy and had waited too long to open it and when I finally did there was nothing they could do to help me. I mixed it into my ww and unbleched AP flour at a 50 / 50 ratio to help use it up. Thought I’d used it all until last week I found a small container of it. Since then we’ve made your cornbread recipe twice. So again, thanks for helping us to use up all that darn corn flour!
