  • Homemade or readymade Cornbread                       700 grams
  • Maple syrup, plus more for serving                          1/2 cup
  • Half-and-half (1/2 milk – ½ buttermilk)                   3 cups
  • Eggs                                                                       4 large
  • Salt                                                                         1/4 teaspoon


  1. Cut the cornbread into 1-inch cubes.

Note: If making the cornbread at home, prepare it as per package instructions, cool it and then cut. Cornbread is crumbly bread baked from cornmeal or fresh ground corn.

Tip: You can also use any other crumbly bread or muffin that you like for this recipe.

  1. Set the oven for preheating to 300 degrees.
  2. Meanwhile, beat the eggs in a large bowl and add the half-and-half, salt and maple syrup to it.
  3. Stir to combine everything nicely and then add the cornbread cubes to this mixture. Stir lightly.
  4. Let the cornbread sit in the maple syrup mixture for about 5 minutes to allow it to absorb the mixture and become soft. After 5 minutes the bread will break into small crumb like pieces when you stir.
  5. Transfer this mixture into a baking dish and flatten the surface with a spatula.
  6. Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 40 – 50 minutes or until the pudding is fully baked.

Tip: To check if something has baked properly, insert a toothpick in its centre and it should come out clean.

  1. Let the pudding cool slightly and then divide it into serving cups. Drizzle maple syrup on top and serve warm.
