What a great idea for a game-day appetizer or a fun family lunch! Fill with chili, barbecue chicken, stew, pork, veggies, or just about anything.


  •  Oil for spraying pan
  • 1   egg
  • 1 cup (250 mL) milk
  • ¾ cup (175 mL) sugar
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) butter
  • 1 cup (250 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (250 mL) cornmeal
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) baking powder
  • ¼ tsp (1 mL) salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Spray the Brownie Pan with oil using the Kitchen Spritzer.

  2. Add the egg, milk, sugar, oil, and melted butter to the Batter Mixer & Dispenser. Pump the handle until combined. Add the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt to the dispenser. Pump the handle until combined.

  3. Place the dispenser cap on the plunger and select the medium dot. Dispense 1 pump of the batter into each well of the pan.

  4. Bake for 18–20 minutes, or until a Cake Tester & Releaser inserted into the cornbread comes out clean.

  5. Remove from the oven and immediately use the square Boat Press to create a well in each cornbread. Fill the boats with chili or barbecue chicken.
