Can you Make Cornbread in a Bread Machine?


The long answer short – yes you can make cornbread in a bread machine. In fact, there are many variations of cornbread that can be made at home with almost any bread machine there is.

There are plenty of recipes specialized for bread machine use so you won’t have to figure things as you go, and yet, just rely on the recipe to achieve the results.

Of course, you can always fine-tune a recipe according to your needs – but here’s what you will need in order to make cornbread in a bread machine:

  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Cornmeal
  • Bread flour
  • Baking powder
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla
  • Salt
  • Butter

There might be a couple of more things, but this are the main ingredients you will find in almost any of the cornbread recipes.

However, in order to motivate you to give this recipe a try (in case you’re in doubt), here’s what cornbread really goes well with:

  • BBQ of any type
  • Soups or stews
  • Ham
  • Roasted chicken
  • Pork

You might not be the biggest fan of this type of bread, but believe me, once you try it with your favorite meal – it’ll really prove itself to be a good choice.

Therefore, let’s go straight to the recipe!

Panasonic Bread Maker Cornbread Recipe


In case you have a Panasonic bread maker, it’s your lucky day! The reason I have listed a special cornbread recipe just for Panasonic bread makers is that Panasonic took the time to come up with the perfect recipe that works with any of their bread makers.

This recipe will also work with bread makers of another brand, but you might have to fine-tune a couple of things. In case you don’t own a Panasonic bread machine, don’t worry, I didn’t forget about you – just skip this part and head to the next part where you will find the same exact recipe ideal for all bread machine types.

For this cornbread recipe, here are ingredients you will need:

  • 3 large eggs
  • 300ml milk
  • 10ml lemon juice
  • 175g melted white vegetable fat
  • 250g maize flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of gluten-free baking powder

And here’s what you will need to do:

  1. Get a bowl, crack your eggs, add milk & lemon juice, and whisk the ingredients together. When you’ve mixed them well, pour the mixture to the baking pan
  2. Pour the remaining ingredients on top of the mixture you’ve placed in the baking pan of your bread maker
  3. Start your Panasonic bread maker at a dough cycle and leave it on for 5 minutes
  4. Optionally: Lift the lid and take a flat implement to the sides in order to avoid sticking
  5. Set your Panasonic bread maker to bake (or Extrabake)
  6. Once the process is completed (it will take just under an hour), leave the cornbread on a cooling rack before you chop it up into squares and serve it

This will give you a medium loaf that is easy to prepare (takes about 5 minutes). If you are looking for more recipes for your Panasonic bread maker, make sure to check their official recipes.

Bread Machine Cornbread Recipe


No matter which breadmaker you have, the following recipe is ideal for almost any bread maker. It has been tested by many people and I’ve tested it in a couple of bread makers, including Zojirushi – and there was very little to no tuning required.

Let’s get to it – here’s what you will need:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup of melted butter
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 1/4 cup of bread flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 4 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla

And if you’re in a rush and you’re hungry – here’s what to do in order to prepare your delicious cornbread:

  1. Lightly beat two eggs into a bowl
  2. Pour the eggs into a baking pan of your bread maker
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients in order listed above (or follow the order of the ingredients recommended by your bread maker’s manual)
  4. Set the bread maker’s mode to either a Quick Bread cycle or Cake mode with a light crust (depending on the bread maker)
  5. Wait for the cycle to finish before you leave the cornbread to cool off before serving

Cornmeal or Cornbread – What’s the Difference?


If you’re a big fan of cornbread, there is a still possibility of being confused with the term of cornmeal.

The main reason for this is because cornmeal is actually a traditional ingredient in cornbread. But on the other hand, it’s also used for texture (or even sweetness) in cookies or other bread types.

Whenever your recipe requires cornmeal but doesn’t specify the kind – the best way to go about this is to get medium-long cornmeal.

While Panasonic didn’t use cornmeal for their cornbread recipe, there is cornmeal required in the second cornbread recipe.

However, now when you know the main difference between these two, you’ll never mix these two together.


Not everyone likes cornbread, but if you do – you now have two recipes that are very similar but can be used in a number of breadmaker machines.

If you’re a proud Panasonic bread machine owner, you’ll love their official cornbread recipe that is adjusted to their bread machine. However, if you own any other breadmaker brand, you can rely on the second recipe within this post for the best results.

One thing is for sure, you won’t be disappointed!

What do you combine your cornbread with? Did you try one of these two recipes?
