Homemade Slow-Cooker Cornbread
Updated March 7, 2017
tablespoons unsalted butter
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
tablespoon baking powder
teaspoon chili powder (optional)
Melt unsalted butter in a 5-6 quart slow cooker on high heat.
Stir together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and chili powder in a medium mixing bowl. Then stir in buttermilk and eggs. The batter should be thick, but barely pourable and spreadable.
Spread melted butter around in slow cooker so it coats the bottom of the cooker. Pour in cornbread batter and spread evenly.
Cover the slow cooker and cook on high for 2 hours.
Let cornbread cool slightly and serve with a spoon.
- For a more complex cornbread, feel free to fold in additional ingredients like sweet corn, diced jalapenos, or even crispy bacon.
