Cornbread in the Toaster Oven

 I've been a member of this group, MultiCooker Mondays for a few months now.  Sue of Palatable Pastimes started the group and asked us to share recipes using a variety of small kitchen appliances other than our stoves.  

Corn Bread

I have a few tried and true small kitchen appliances and use them, a lot.  I even have a Sous Vide, but haven't really played with it a lot.  It's actually been a bit of a dud for me.  I may play with it more now that I'm not working.  

But... This post is actually about one of the many things I've used my little Black and Decker Toaster Oven for.  

This is a basic, basic Toaster Oven and I'm continually surprised at how versatile this little thing is.  I keep thinking up new ways of using it.  

This month, I baked some cornbread in it.  I even used a mix, which is something I rarely do.  But I needed some cornbread for another recipe, Savory Corn Cheesecake, so I picked up a package of Jiffy Corn Muffin mix.  (I even used the toaster oven to bake the Cheesecake in).

I made the cornbread my own though.  Instead of using milk, I used a mix of my homemade Créme Fräiche and Buttermilk.  It did add a little something extra.  I think I've been in the south too long, cause when I tasted the finished cornbread, I thought it was really sweet. I'm used to the way we make it in the south now. No sugar added.

 But it was still good, especially with some butter and honey on top.  The butter melted fast.

I ate it with a fork, cause I really don't like sticky fingers.

I did bake it in a smaller pan than they suggested, but it worked out so well. This 5x7 inch dish fits perfectly in my toaster oven.  
After using about a third of the cornbread in the cheesecake, I just kept slicing and eating it, but I did save a little and ate it with some collard greens and it was amazing.  I thought I'd taken pictures, but it's nothing more than a happy memory as is the cornbread.

    1. When I make cornbread from scratch, I use buttermilk and saw no reason not to do so while using a mix, and it worked, very well.

    1. I think adding the creme fraiche along with the buttermilk added a whole new dimension to a mix. It was pretty tasty.

  3. I am one of the ones who really loves sweet cornbread - but only on it's own, if it's alongside a savory dish like chili no sugar please. Love that you found a way to make this in the toaster oven - it looks perfect!

    1. I used to like sweet cornbread, but have discovered I like it southern style as well, with no sugar. A chef I used to work with, would make cornbread with a dollop of bacon grease in it, and it was good. I've since made it many ways, but during our hot summers, I'll continue to bake it in my toaster oven. Doesn't heat up the house, and the cornbread was perfectly cooked.
