Looking for one last item to make your Thanksgiving menu complete? Consider adding this Pumpkin Cornbread, which couldn’t be more perfect for the big meal. With only 10 minutes of total preparation time and 3o minutes in the oven, this recipe will reduce your stress level by taking the focus off of side dishes and appetizers, so you can concentrate on the main components of your meal and spend more time with your loved ones. Every guest at your table will love this twist on your regular cornbread.

Just in case you’ll have leftover pumpkin purée from baking your little heart out, this cornbread recipe will use up the remaining pumpkin that so easily accumulates.  I don’t know about you, but I can’t stand super dry cornbread. I have had many cornbread slices and muffins that required one to have a tall glass of water nearby. Not so with this one. Using pumpkin helps the cornbread stay moist and dense with lots of air pockets throughout. Ideal for eating it plain and still arid enough for soaking up honey or maple syrup.

This cornbread browns evenly all around and looks even better on the inside. The pumpkin purée gives it a light amber color… I can’t think of any side dish that’s more fitting for the upcoming holiday than this one.

With pumpkin season pretty much over, I was so glad to find another way to use it. I just love it so much!
