Dinner at Chez Dog

corn breadI make this corn bread quite a lot in cold weather.  It’s extremely yummy and good for sharing with the dogs.

  • 2 T unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 T honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 and 3/4 C buttermilk
  • 2 C corn meal
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda

Whisk the egg in a mixing bowl, add honey and buttermilk.  Add dry ingredients and while stirring, drizzle in melted butter (I do it this way so the hot butter doesn’t cook the raw egg.)  Pour into a greased baking pan and bake at 400 degrees F until cooked through (about 30 minutes, depending on type of pan used).  Alternatively, you can fry the batter in butter.  That’s pretty delish too.

If I’m making corn bread for the dogs only, I substitute olive oil for the melted butter (one less pan to wash) and occasionally omit the salt. I’ll also mix in a couple tablespoons of crushed eggshell powder if I have some.  Recently I got some packages of cheese crumbles on sale and mixed them into the batter. I didn’t hear any complaints.

I usually moisten the corn bread with yogurt, buttermilk, cottage cheese or milk in the dog bowls before serving.

  1. LOVE this! I love cooking for my dogs. It’s too a point sometimes that I can’t even cook for my hubby and myself without my dogs thinking all the smells and pan clanging is for them!

    I make cornbread for the dogs too – I sometimes add chopped – diced spinach (fresh) to the recipe too. It seems to satisfy their urge to eat grass when we’re out walking.
