Bush Food... Sweet Cornbread

This is probably one of the oldest and most loved of all the outdoor bread recipes and it has more derivations than any other bread recipe I know, so do experiment with this to see what suits yourself...

the ingredients we tend to use are

1 cup flour
1 cup fine corn meal
2/3 cup of sugar
1 tsp salt
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 large egg
1 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 oz butter
2 tbsp Honey

mix it all well and put in the oven at 180 degrees celsius for 30 mins or until a knitting needle comes out clean when poked into the bread

it's an easy recipe to do outdoors in a dutch oven, just mix all the dry ingredients at home and mix all the wet ingredients in a separate container, combine them when ready then put in your dutch oven and keep an eye out so that it doesn't burn

it works well on it's own or as an accompaniment to any main dish.


  1. Thanks for the recipe. (STILL hate that word verification!)

    1. Thanks Gorges, the word verification is a real pain!!,I have a hard time posting on other blogs because of it!!
