Sweetheart Cornbread

Total Time

This is a delicious recipe I've served many times to my family. I don't always shape the bread into a heart, but it is fun to do that for Valentine's Day or another special occasion. Even if you don't have a heart-shaped pan, garnishing with ribbon adds a colorful touch. One of our favorite meals is this corn bread with bean soup and a salad.


  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 can (8-1/4 ounces) cream-style corn
  • 1-1/2 cups cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt


  1. In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add sour cream, oil and corn; mix well. Stir in the dry ingredients just until combined. Pour into a greased and floured 5-cup heart shaped baking pan or a 9-in. round pan. Bake at 425° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan before removing to a wire rack.
<b>Editor's Note:</b> For a festive presentation, tie a red ribbon around the edge of the bread before serving.
