What You’ll Need:

Ingredients to make pumpkin cornbread.
  • 1 1/4 C. all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 C. yellow cornmeal
  • 2 Tbsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp. maple syrup, or more to taste (honey or other sweeteners work, or 1/4 C. sugar)
  • 1/3 C. unsalted butter
  • 2/3 C. pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling!)
  • 3/4 C. & 2 Tbsp. buttermilk
  • 1 large egg


  1. In a large bowl, mix the flower, baking powder, cornmeal, and salt together until well blended.
  2. Melt your unsalted butter and pour into a large bowl, whisk in the maple syrup and beat in the egg until blended. Then add the pumpkin puree and buttermilk and incorporate until smooth.
  3. Slowly and carefully mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir until combined, making sure not to over mix.
  4. Line your slow cooker with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Then pour the batter into the slow cooker and smooth out until even.
  5. Place lid on top and cook on low for about 3 1/2-4 hours, or 1 1/2-2 hours on high. Edges will be golden brown and an inserted toothpick in the center will come out clean when the cornbread is done.
  6. Lift the foil out of the slow cooker and allow the cornbread to cool for about 10 minutes. Then fold down the foil, cut the cornbread, and serve!
