An Overview Of How To Reheat Cornbread

This article will show you three ways to reheat cornbread.

You may have some left over after a meal or be craving some for breakfast but don’t want to pop the whole thing in the oven.

We’ll show you how to reheat cornbread on the stovetop, in the microwave, and in the oven!

How To Reheat Cornbread?

1. Microwave Reheating

This is the simplest way to reheat cornbread. You can place it in a microwave-safe bowl, add a few tablespoons of water or milk, and then heat it in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds on high.

Once it’s done, you’ll want to mix the cornbread well. If it’s a runny batter, you’ll probably want to add more water or milk, so it’s not like a watery mess.

2. Oven Reheating

Place your cornbread in a greased oven-safe dish and cook in the oven at 350 until it is heated through. This is great if you have something else cooking because it’s quick and it’s usually soft and gooey!

3. Stovetop Reheating

This is the most time-consuming of all three ways, but it might be worth it to go this route if you’re making lots of cornbread and your microwave runs out of power as you keep making more.

Once your cornbread has cooled, place it in a casserole dish or anything that’s oven-safe and place it on the stovetop over medium heat.

Let it cook for about 20 minutes until it’s heated through, and stir well before eating.

Tips For Reheating Cornbread

1. Adding Moisture To Keep It Soft

Adding moisture to leftover cornbread will give it a softer texture and help prevent sogginess. Add a few tablespoons of milk or a little water at the end of heating it in the microwave to make it softer and moister.

If you feel like there’s nothing to add, try popping your microwave for another 10 seconds to make it smaller.

2. Keeping The Cornbread Crisp

Cornbread needs to be cooked until it reaches an internal temperature of at least 205.

If you want your cornbread to be crunchy, you can pop it in the oven for another minute or two after it’s placed on the stovetop over medium heat. Alternatively, reheat on low if you’re using the oven method.

3. Wrapping The Cornbread

If you want to reheat in a casserole dish, use foil or another oven-safe wrap to cover your dish. Otherwise, you can place the cornbread directly in the microwave without anything covering it.


No matter how you decide to reheat that cornbread, it’ll still have all that marvelous taste that made it so delicious in the first place!

If you’re craving something sweet and are looking for something other than cake or cookies, try some cornbread!

Remember to heat through and stir periodically to avoid any sogginess while cooking. Keep some moistening ingredients on hand if you need them too.
