Cornbread is such a great, flavorful and toothsome accompaniment to chili, soups, and stews. In the fall, why not give cornbread a little update with the autumn flavors and color of pumpkin with a little pumpkin spice? A topping of cinnamon sugar gives this pumpkin cornbread a little sweetness and crunch. Serve hot with cinnamon honey butter on the side (not pictured).


  • For the cornbread
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 cup cornmeal

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree

  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 tablespoon molasses

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

  • For the cinnamon honey butter
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a 9-inch square baking pan with non-stick spray. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flours, baking powder, salt, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, nutmeg and the cornmeal. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with the pumpkin, brown sugar, oil and molasses.
  • Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just incorporated (do not over-mix). Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Stir together the granulated sugar and the tablespoon of ground cinnamon, then sprinkle over the surface of the cornbread. Bake for 30 minutes, or a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • While baking, make the cinnamon honey butter by whipping all ingredients until smooth.
  • Serve the cornbread warm with honey butter on the side.
