Recipe Notes

Meal Prep and Storage

  • How to prep cornbread ahead of time: While you can bake the cornbread the day before, it is best enjoyed fresh.
  • How to store cornbread: Keep cornbread in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 to 5 days. It will last on the counter for up to 2 to 3 days, as well.
  • How to freeze cornbread: You can either freeze the entire loaf of cornbread or slice it into individual portions. Either way, tightly wrap the cornbread and store it in the freezer for up to 4 to 6 months.
  • How to reheat cornbread: Either warm cornbread up in a 300℉ oven for 10 minutes or use the microwave.
