I’ve made this a bunch, you guys! I love it so very much. I like it with cider or coffee for breakfast and with soup for dinner, or even as a late night snack with honey butter. Sometimes I eat all the cornbread. Sometimes I ask Elliot if he can tell that I ate an embarrassing amount. He always says I still look fly. I’m thinking he’s being a bit too nice, but I love him for it.
Oh! And sorry I didn’t slice it for the photos, you guys. The truth is, I wanted it to be fully intact to bring to a friend’s house. You see, soup was happening for dinner and this was the fall-time side. But rest assured it’s a dream. Slice it or pick it up and eat it like a giant muffin-cookie. Elliot won’t judge you ever and neither will I.

- 1 t kosher salt
- 1/2 t cinnamon
- 1/4 t nutmeg
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 T molasses
- Preheat your oven to 400F. Grease an 8-inch baking dish. Line the bottom with a parchment round, if you want!
- In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, spices, brown sugar, and cornmeal. In a smaller bowl whisk together the eggs, pumpkin, oil and molasses. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
- Transfer to the prepared dish and smooth out the top as much as possible. Bake for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

I bet this was so good with that soup dinnah! and I just have the funniest image of you eating the whole thing like a cookie…ha!
I wouldn’t put it past me…
Yes gurl you still look fly.. You know I love anythang cornbread.
Shucks girl! And yeah man, let’s turn this into hushpuppies, ok?
Pumpkin hushpuppies? Hells yeah!
I’m glad my pup doesn’t tell anyone when I eat an entire something by myself. His eyes aren’t even all that judge-y. He’s a good bud.
For real! Pups are good like that. 🙂
Looks great! Too bad we don’t have pumpkin puree in Germany, so it’s a bit harder to make. How long can you keep the bread for?
Shucks! And it’ll last for about 5 days at room temperature wrapped up tight, but longer if you freeze it!
This is awesome and eating it like a cookie is maybe the best idea ever. Genius!
Let’s treat this like a single-serving, ok?
Cornbread muffin cookie, HECK TO THE YES. Totes crushing on the nature scene on top!
You are a freakin genius!
Cornbread sounds amazing, but pumpkin cornbread sounds even better! Yum!
You know it!
I love homemade cornbread, and adding pumpkin sounds genius.
Cornbread is my favorite! And it’s fall, so why not, right?
This makes all my dreams come true. I owe you a beer.
I wish I could chug one right now with you.
would it be ok to sub coconut oil for the olive oil?
