  • Pumpkin Shaped Pan or Mold, if desired


  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter or oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt full fat


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Liberally butter or spray you muffin tin or pumpkin-shaped mold. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together cornmeal, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together egg, melted butter, honey, pumpkin puree, and yogurt.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until fully combined. The batter will be thick.
  • Using a spring-loaded cookie scoop (about ⅓ cup scoop), scoop into tin or molds. If using a shaped mold, pat it down lightly with wet hands.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the tops are golden and puffed and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. If using a muffin tin, the bake time may be closer to 12-14 minutes.


  • To make this recipe without the pumpkin puree, simply substitute the pumpkin with more yogurt -- you'll need ¾ cups total. 
  • For a sweeter cornbread, add up to another tablespoon of honey to the mixture.
