Sriracha Cornbread

Sriracha Cornbread is a great way to add a burst of flavor to your favorite soup or chili.

Sriracha cornbread is an easy and flavorful take on the Southern favorite.

One thing I find myself doing more and more often these days is taking prepackaged foods and making a homemade version. Most of the time the from scratch version is cheaper, tastier, and better for you.

Awhile back I saw a sriracha cornbread mix at the grocery store and was intrigued. I ended up not getting it because it had sugar in it and I am not a fan of sweet cornbread. It got my wheels turning  and I knew I could easily make it at home.

  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 to 4 Tablespoons sriracha hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Grease an 8 inch baking dish or oven proof skillet
  3. Combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl
  4. Whisk together the buttermilk, egg, sriracha, and oil together
  5. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and bake for 20 to 23 minutes

I used two tablespoons of hot sauce in the cornbread and it was not very spicy but it had the sriracha flavor. If you want a spicier dish add in 4 Tablespoons of sriracha.

This would be fabulous with hearty two bean chilli, Southwestern Potato Soup, or Southwestern Pinto Bean Soup. I think, though, that my absolute favorite way to eat this or pretty much any cornbread is piping hot and slathered with butter. It doesn’t get much better than that.
