How To Make Cornbread

You might be surprised at how easy it is to make cornbread.  As typical, this recipe starts by preparing a pan (9×9 works well) with non-stick spray and preheating an oven to 420 degrees.

Next, chop 2 tablespoons of fresh rosemary.  Fresh herbs are always preferred, though you could substitute 2 teaspoons of dried rosemary.  Don’t like rosemary?  You can always leave it out.

Now, combine the cornmeal, egg, oil, milk, and agave syrup until it is well blended.

cornbread batter
Fold in the rosemary if you are going to use it. 

Pour the cornbread batter into the prepared pan and bake until it is golden brown and cooked thoroughly, about 15 – 17 minutes. 

You can check for doneness just like you would a cake – insert a toothpick in the center.  If it comes out with batter on it, cook a few minutes longer.  Repeat, if necessary.
