Adapted from Ms. Lallie Wallace's recipe for "Blender Cornbread" submitted in 1969
Recipe type: Bread
Serves: 8
  • 1 8-oz can cream-style corn
  • 2 extra large eggs
  • 1 c. sour cream
  • ½ c. vegetable oil
  • 1 c. self-rising white cornmeal (See notes)
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spread 1-2 Tb. vegetable oil into a 9” cast iron skillet. Place it into the hot oven for about 8-10 minutes.
  3. Add all ingredients to a blender and mix well.
  4. Remove hot skillet from oven and pour batter into it.
  5. Bake about 30-40 minutes; remove when a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
The original recipe called for 'cream style white corn' which I had a hard time finding, so I used yellow creamed corn, which was just fine.
The original recipe called for ½ tsp. salt, but I eliminated it since the self-rising cornmeal has a healthy amount of sodium.
The original recipe did not specify, but I opted to use white cornmeal, since it’s a Nashville tradition.
