Home » Recipe Swap » THANKSGIVUKAH Herbed Chestnut Cornbread

Low Calorie, Pareve
Serves: 8


  • 2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Manischewitz® Honey
  • 2 tablespoons (packed) golden brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 1 cup SEASON® Whole, Roasted Chestnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Basil
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 cup Manischewitz® Vegetable Broth
  • 1/2 cup applesauce


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray and flour a 10 inch round cake pan or 9x13 aluminum pan. In a large bowl, sift together the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. In a medium bowl, beat together the oil, honey, and sugar until pale in color. Then add egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir just until combined (do not over-mix). Stir chestnuts, thyme, basil, and parsley into the batter.
In a separate bowl, mix the vegetable broth and applesauce together. Gradually stir in the broth-apple mixture, 1/3 at a time to the batter. (If batter seems overly dry, add a little more vegetable broth, a tablespoon at a time.); In another large bowl, beat egg whites to semi-stiff peaks with an electric mixer. Fold egg whites into batter.
Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake until top is golden and slightly puffed, about 50 minutes. Cool corn bread in pan on rack 10 minutes. 
Serve warm or at room temperature.
Store cooled cornbread, tightly wrapped in plastic, at room temperature, up to 3 days.
