Why is my cornbread rubbery









Cornbread, a very popular quick bread that contains cornmeal



 and it is very much popular and widely eaten in America and



 particularly native Americans eat a lot of it as it is a Native



 American cuisine. It is also eaten in turkey, Greece,



 Portuguese and Albania as well but due to the fact that it’s



 widely eaten in America so I will refer it as American cuisine.



 So there are many mistakes people encounter while making



 cornbread and one of the problem is your cornbread becomes



 rubbery.

 






 



As you know a well and prepared cornbread is supposed to be



 crumbly nice and fresh it is not too soft or rubbery like stuff if



 you have prepared it’s batter well and also bake it well. So the



 main reason of why your cornbread becomes rubbery is the



 quantity of flour and cornmeal in the batter of cornbread. If



 your flour and cornmeal are in high concentration than



 required than it’s a higher possibility that cornbread will



 become very less crumbly and soft just like a rubbery



 cornbread because the bread now does not have enough



 concentration of gluten to hold it together. So that’s the main



 reason your cornbread becomes rubbery.

 than simply add more flour and baking powder to it so that it



 will become less dense and your problem of dense cornbread



 will be solved.

 which is you have to add more cornmeal and also do not stir



 the cornbread batter too much. When you do these two things



 than I am sure you will not get a tough cornbread.

 after few minutes. If your dressing too wet or gummy than



 remove the cover and bake it well till the dressing gumminess



 is vanished.

 because your cornbread is not cooked well from the middle.

 than your cornbread will become too much crumbly type. The



 cornbread is not thick yet it contains lumps and is also watery



 type.
