Steps to follow:


Firstly, to make this flourless cornbread recipe you will have to place the corn in a container to blend them. Remember to wash them and place them individually into the blender. It may be easier to do this by buying corn in a can, as it is already separated. All you would have to do is rinse them with a strainer before placing them into the blender.

Before continuing, we preheat the oven to 180º.

Once you have all the grains in the container, melt the stick of butter in a saucepan over medium heat. After this step, add the butter to the container where the grains are located and add the 5 eggs, a pinch of salt and the condensed milk, as well as the baking powder.

This last ingredient will not be necessary if you make corn bread without an oven. You can make cornbread in a double boiler or in a pressure cooker, as we will show you below.

Once you have everything together, mix them again with your blender until they become an homogeneous paste.


You can also blend the corn kernels into a paste and then empty it into a bowl and then add the rest of the ingredients there and stir them manually. If you don't have a blender be sure to mash the corn kernels well and properly stir the ingredients to form a paste.


Now that the dough is ready, it's time to prepare the mold to bake your cornbread. Remember to grease your pan so the dough doesn't stick.

Leave the cornbread in the oven for 50 minutes. However, you must keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't burn as this will depend on the power of each oven.

Once the 50 minutes are over, we recommend you take a toothpick and pierce it in your cornbread. If it comes out clean, it means that your cornbread is ready. However, if it comes out moist, you'll need to leave it in your oven for a couple more minutes.


Now, simply wait for your flourless cornbread to cool down for around 25 minutes before serving. Then, enjoy!

  • You can use vanilla essence and 1/4 cup of sugar to give this dessert a sweeter flavor.
  • If instead of a cornbread you want to prepare corn muffins without flour, we recommend dividing the pasta into smaller molds to serve them in a more original way.
