Broccoli Cornbread Recipe Without Cottage Cheese

Recipe for fluffy broccoli cornbread with a few essential ingredients and a tonne of broccoli-cheese flavour! An absolute southern favourite, this fluffy, delicate cornbread variation. This spring (can I still call it that?) I thought it would be great to share some of the traditional southern dishes I’ve picked up after relocating to North Carolina.

After all, southern comfort food not only makes you feel good when you eat it, but it’s also a massive hit at parties, business functions, and feeding picky eaters. *wink* When cooking for a large group of people, especially children, I always choose southern cuisine. Ham, potato salad, macaroni and cheese dishes, and broccoli cheese cornbread will all be gone in no time.

Cornbread is a traditional Southern dish.

Cornbread is prepared in a variety of ways in the south. The most traditional cast iron pan cornbread is baked in bacon oil to generate crispy edges. There are, however, fluffier versions with a variety of add-ons. I recently attended an occasion where a new acquaintance brought her version of broccoli cornbread.

Due to the inclusion of cottage cheese, it had a luscious deep casserole-like feel and was packed with broccoli cheese delight. Even though I enjoyed her broccoli cornbread dish, I thought I’d try making something similar but with a fluffier texture. As a result, today’s Fluffy Broccoli Cornbread Recipe has been significantly altered, with cottage cheese replaced with sour cream!

Making broccoli cornbread with sour cream rather than cottage cheese provides the same level of wetness while maintaining a light, pillowy texture. The recipe calls for onions, spices, and shredded cheddar cheese to appeal to its zesty broccoli.

  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 30
  • Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 28.5 oz boxes cornbread mix (17 oz)
  • a dozen big eggs
  • 1 gallon sour cream
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon powdered garlic
  • paprika, 1 teaspoon
  • a half teaspoon of salt
  • 12 oz. thawed frozen broccoli
  • 3/4 cup onion, chopped
