If you’re looking for the lightest, fluffiest cornbread ever – this Greek Yogurt cornbread recipe is here for you!

  • Ready in 30 Minutes
  • A Great Quick Side Dish with Dinner

This sweet Greek yogurt cornbread is a fantastic and simple recipe to make ahead. Great for a busy weeknight, for entertaining, or just for those nights when you don’t feel like cooking.  I like to prep one a pan of these ahead of time, and refrigerate some for later.  Having ready cooked side dishes in the fridge or freezer is a great way to enjoy home cooked recipes when you don’t have time in the kitchen.  Check out all my make ahead meals on The Herbeevore for some inspo to help you prep, keep, heat, and heat!

Make Yogurt Cornbread Vegetarian for a Healthy Version

This vegetarian Sour Cream Cornbread is a simple way to get extra veggies in your diet. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegetarian cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around vegetarian pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make healthier meals for you and your family. I made a list of my 125 favorite vegan pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my vegetarian recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and healthy recipes are fantastic meatless meals for your table.

How Do I Make Cornbread with Greek Yogurt?

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9×9 inch baking dish, and set aside.
  2. Mix the Wet Ingredients: in a large bowl, add the sunflower oil, Greek Yogurt, corn, eggs, and chili flakes. Mix well with a wooden spoon to combine.
  3. Combine the Dry Ingredients: in a medium bowl, add the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. With a clean spoon, mix well to combine.
  4. Make the Batter: Take the bowl with your dry ingredients and mix them into the wet. Fold well to make a thick batter. Pour batter into the baking dish. Top with extra chili flakes to garnish.
  5. Bake: Place baking dish in the oven, and bake cornbread for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned on top. Test doneness with a toothpick: place toothpick in the center of the cornbread, when the cornbread is fully cooked the toothpick should come out clean.
