Serving faith & cornbread


Updated January 13, 2012

Sour Cream Cornbread
Serves 6 to 8 depending on size

3 large eggs, beaten
1-1/2 cups canned cream corn
1-1/2 cups sour cream
3/4 cup canola corn oil
1-1/2 cups cornbread self-rising cornmeal
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour (NOT self-rising)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons lightly salted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Generously grease bottom and sides of a 10″ cast-iron skillet or ovenproof baking dish; place in oven to preheat until oil is sizzling hot. In medium mixing bowl, sift together cornemal, flour, salt and baking powder. Add beaten eggs. Stir in creamed corn, sour cream and oil. Wear oven mitt and carefully remove baking dish from oven, add a drop of batter. If batter sizzles and browns, pour in remaining batter. Bake 30 to 40 minutes until knife inserted in center comes out clean and the cornbread has browned according to your desired taste.

Cracking an egg on a flat surface gives you less shell shatter and less likelihood of having a piece of shell in your egg.

  1. May the Lord prosper you! I just saw you on CNN! I have something that I want to sell to get myself out of poverty and you have been my inspiration today!!!!

    May prosperity be your portion today!

    • God bless you Diana. Thanks for your kind words. Poverty is a curse straight from the pit of hell (pardon the strong language). The Good News is there is a way out. It begins with the desire to want to get out and a willingness to
      work. You’re already on your way (me too). I did a lot of reasearch on entrepreneurs. Specifically those who started with just an idea and NO cash. Learned a lot about shoestring marketing. Two favorite books: Buzzmarketing
      by Mark Hughes, Why Didn’t I Think of That by Robert L. Shook. Fascinating. Found them in the library.

    • Hi Bev,
      We just seen you on FoxNews and I’m so proud of you!! Way to make a come back.. Congratulations on your great success! YOU ARE AN INSPIRATION!!! I hope you make enough to buy your house back and more!!! Keep trusting God, and trusting yourself for making it happen!

      First, many thanks for your interest. I’ve been amazed. My apologies for the problem. Apparently, the order link was jammed due to the large response. It’s been tested and is working properly now. Within 48 hours of your purchase, you will receive a PDF version of the eBook. The pages don’t expire. Have a WONDERFUL day!

    • Hi Glenn,

      Greatly appreciate your encouragement! I can honestly say the adversity has turned out to be “fuel in my tank of determination”! What I thought would take me out, is pushing me forward – in a good way.

  8. Jeannie Pierson said:

    Beverly – you are so inspiring! We too were hit hard by the bad economy. My mom used to use cracklins’ in her cornbread. Good luck to you and God bless your journey!!!

    • Your comment along with the others have strengthened me.
      Words cannot express my gratitude! It feels like I’ve met
      ministering angels from heaven. God bless you.

    Ms. Davis,
    I saw your story on Fox 5 news and was truely amazed. I wish you the best of luck with everything and may God continue to bless you. I will pray that you not only get your house but, get a bigger one with a huge kitchen so I can see you be the next Racheal Ray.
    God Bless!

    Where do I buy your products. I don’t even like cornbread!

  11. Ms. Davis,

    I just happened upon your website and after reading more about your story and mission, I’d like to just wish you the best of luck. I’m going to order the ebook when I have some money to do so – I’d love to support your effort. Amazing what GOD takes us through sometimes to show us who He is and who we are!

    All the best!


    • Thanks for your kind words! We all go through seasons of
      “testing”. In the end, the good and the negative experiences
      work out for our good. Stay strong in faith. The Lord will see
      you through to victory!


    • Thanks Tammy. Just emailed “my gift” of
      encouragement to you. Stay strong!

  12. Good luck to you Beverly! I think you are gonna make it and what a lesson you are giving to others – the ones struggling and the ones causing the struggle. My husband and I own a small soap making company in Lake Tahoe – Tahoe Mountain Soap Company. You are right is is better to be your own boss, create your own product and sell it! Any possibilities you may turn your ebook into a hard back book? Maybe thats your next step.

    • Hi Jan,

      Congrats on your soap making business! How cool is that? Soap is a product EVERYBODY can use. =) Yes, I have plans to publish a hardback book. In fact, my dream is to publish a “series” of inspirational cookbooks…=) Thanks for your wonderful encouragement!

  13. I just heard your story on Marketplace Money, and can’t tell you how much I admire your spirit and wish you well. Just bought the cookbook, and am looking forward to enjoying your recipes as well.
    Brava Beverly!

  15. Hi,
    I can’t find any place to order any of your goodies. I have looked all over your website and see no place to order.
    Could you tell me where to go to see what you are offering
    for sale? I guess I just missed it.
    Thanks and God Bless You!

  16. Hi,

    I seen your story on Fox news. And it really made me smile. You are such an inspiration. My husband and I were in the Real Estate market and was hit hard in Florida. I am working two jobs and barely see my three boys that I love so much. I am feeling a lot of sadness and anxiety. But I loved hearing how you are making a bad situation turn out to be hope for others and to give you a great business and I will also say prayer to God that you end up with your home. I too am in Foreclosure but don’t have any money to spare as I am just trying to get by. I have a great recipe for my Husbands family recipe but don’t know if I have much of a chance with little funds! Can you give me some guidance. I love the lord and I know he will pull me through this somehow. I really miss going to church due to working all week-ends. THanks for any encouragement.

    Thanks so much ,

  17. Bev,
    I read your story yesterday in the AJC and it was the best thing in the paper. I’ve been unemployed for 3 years and am worried about money, but you have given me hope. You have made some good lemonade.
