Beer Batter Cornbread

Recipes / Beer Batter Cornbread



Nothing says delicious homemade flavor quite like a hearty skillet of warm, golden and perfectly sweet Beer Batter Cornbread. In fact, nobody says anything after taking the first bite of Recipe Royalty Winner Susan’s delicious twist on this southern staple. Luckily, Susan was kind enough to write it all down for us – and you – to try it for ourselves.


  • 1/2 cup Louisiana Fish Fry Products Beer Batter Mix
  • 1 (6-7 oz.) package of cornbread flour mix
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 4 Tbsp. vegetable oil, separated

Optional Ingredients

  • warm butter or honey, as an accompaniment

Beer Batter Mix 8.5 oz


Preheat oven to 415 degrees. Pour 2 Tbsp. of vegetable oil in a 9-inch cast iron skillet; place skillet in oven for about 15 minutes to heat. In a bowl, mix dry ingredients together thoroughly before adding buttermilk, beaten egg, and 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil. Incorporate all ingredients until batter is smooth. Let batter rest for 5 minutes, then pour batter into hot skillet. Bake in oven for 20 minutes or until cornbread browns on top and edges. Turn cornbread out upside-down onto a plate, then cut and serve. This cornbread keeps for about 2 days – if there is any left!
