How to Make Corn Bread More Moist

By Amy Lukavics

If you have a cornbread recipe that tastes great but lacks in moisture, there is a simple change that you can incorporate into any cornbread recipe that will yield a moist, almost cake-like bread. Cornbread is very susceptible to drying out because of the grainy texture of corn meal, but by simply substituting your wet ingredients for creamed corn, you will transform your recipe to produce a delicious cornbread that is worth bragging about. This trick is simple if you know how much creamed corn to use per cup of wet ingredients.

Make a moist cornbread for dinner.

Step 1

Prepare the dry ingredients for your specific cornbread recipe that you wish to make more moist.

Step 2

Substitute one can of creamed corn per cup of combined wet ingredients that you'd usually mix in with the dry ingredients.

Step 3

Mix the dough well and bake the cornbread as usual.
