Grape Cornbread #BreadBakers

An easy sweet cornbread recipe made even sweeter with the addition of grapes. This is a perfect snack, side dish or dessert.




I am super excited about this post. This is a new group I have joined and this month it is all about the grapes. So now once a month at this time I get to blog to you about all kind of bread.

Living in the south I was always kind of used to my cornbread being on the not so sweet side. This cornbread is a bit different,  it has a bit of sugar.  Along with the sweetness of the grapes, this could be dessert. I totally could put a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of  whipped cream over this and call it a day.

On the other hand, I certainly wouldn’t turn away a wedge of this sweet bread to enjoy in the morning with my cup of coffee.

Just saying.


Grape Cornbread


1 cup flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons honey
2 cups black seedless grapes cut in half


Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spray a 8×8 inch dish with cooking spray. Whisk the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.
Using a stand mixer with a paddle attachment combine eggs, sugar, lemon zest and vanilla. Add milk and honey. Add flour mixture and combine until just incorporated. Mix in half of the grapes.
Pour batter into prepared dish. Sprinkle the remaining grapes over the top of the bread. Bake until cake turns golden brown around the edges and start to pull away from the pan. About 30-40 minutes.

Here are a few of my fellow bloggers who make bread with grapes.
