  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk cornmeal, whole wheat flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt until combined.
  • Pour the dry ingredients into wet ingredients and whisk until smooth.
  • Pour into the prepared dish.
  • Bake 25 to 30 minutes until top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let it cool in the pan for a few minutes before removing it to a wire cooling rack to continue cooling completely.
  • Cut into squares and enjoy!


~ Use fine or medium grind cornmeal for a more cake-like texture.
~ Use a gluten free flour blend instead to make this recipe gluten free.
~ Use 100% pure pumpkin purée, not pumpkin pie filling.
~ Use pure maple syrup, not pancake syrup.
~ Whisk just until combined. A few lumps are fine. Do not over mix.
~ Baked until the top is golden brown and the sides are pulling away from the baking dish. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean.
~ Let the cornbread cool in the pan on a cooling rack for 10 to 15 minutes before removing it from the pan to continue cooling completely.

This cornbread is best kept at room temperature. Wrap it tightly in parchment paper and store in an air-tight container. It will last for 1 to 2 days.
After 1 to 2 days, it's best to transfer it to the fridge or freezer. It will keep for 4 to 5 days in the fridge, again wrapped well and in an air-tight container.
Or transfer it to a freezer safe plastic bag or container and keep in the freezer for 2 to 3 months.
