There are so many varieties of cornbread. And even beyond actual cornbread, derivatives are numerous. Muffins, bread, skillet, cornbread dressing, croutons and even cornbread salad (it’s a southern thing made with beans, veggies, cheese and ranch dressing.)

[clear-line]Personally, I like fairly basic cornbread and decide on the flavoring based on what I am serving it with. On this date, I was making a jalapeño laced chili in the Instant Pot, so I figured I’d also experiment with making a complementing sweet cornbread in the Instant Pot.
What makes a sweet cornbread? Honey, of course! A natural sugar, it not only provides flavor, but also aids in making the best moist cornbread.

[clear-line]My sweet cornbread recipe is also super easy. While I prefer to make my own cornbread mix, you can also use a box of Jiffy. This is a cornbread recipe without buttermilk, since I rarely have it on hand. A cup of frozen corn and it’s done!

[clear-line]Since this cornbread is so soft, it is nearly importable to let it get stale or cut it into cubes for croutons, but you can tear it by hand into large chunks and crumbles, drizzle them with butter, salt and pepper and bake them at 300 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until crispy.[clear-line]

[clear-line]While I served my Sweet Cornbread with no condiments, just chili, you can lather yours up with a Cinnamon Honey Butter or one of my other easy flavored butters.

Amy

After cooking the 20 minutes (TOTALly soup) then another 20, it was so bad I threw it out. Very disappointed!

    Jessica at Savory Experiments

    I’m really sorry to hear that, Amy. Curious- are you at a higher altitude?

Michele

I did not have luck with this RECIPE. After the initial cook time it was nowhere near done. I put it in for another 20. We will see. Not really worth it. Can cook it in the oven in less Time.

    Yikes, Michele, I am sorry to hear that. Out of curiosity… do you live at a higher altitude? I’m finding those who are having trouble do and need to use a conversion time table.

I did not have success with this RecipE. When it was finslly done, it did taste good. After the INITIAL cooking time, it was still liquidy. I put it back in another 10 minutes. It was beginning Cook. I did another 10 minutes. Then two more cooks for 5 minutes each. We verifIed that we used ofoper measurments. We did uss the box of Jiffy Cornbread Mix.

    Hi Judy, I’m really sorry to hear that. I’ll go back and make it again to double check, although we’ve made it several times with success from the homemade Jiffy mix. We love the feedback and aim to make sure everyone is happy!

Emily

This took 25 minutes with natural release 10 min because of the altitude where I live. I adjusted for altitude 4,800 ft. the first time for 22 min, but the top was uncooked. people who write recipes should always refer to altitude chart for instant pot.

    Unfortunately, I only write what I can test and I can’t test for altitude. I’m sorry the top didn’t cook properly. Thank you for the feedback.

How many cups of flour are in a “batch”? I am converting this idea to a GF and would like to know your ratios. Thank you!

Julia

I had no idea you can make cornbread in Instant Pot! Gotta give it a go myself:) so thanks for the inspiration!

That looks heavenly! I bet it would be delicious with a big pot of veggie chili!
