  • Step 3

    Place the pan on the bottom layer of the Deluxe Reversible Rack in the lower position, then place the rack in the pot

    Close the lid and move the slider to STEAMCRISP. Select STEAM & BAKE, set the temperature to 385°F, and set the time to 20 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin cooking (PrE will display for about 20 minutes as the unit steams, then the timer will start counting down).

  • Step 5

    When cooking is complete, check for doneness by inserting a wooden toothpick into the middle of the cornbread. If it comes out clean, remove the rack with the pan and let cool for at least 1 hour. If the toothpick comes out with moist crumbs stuck to it, bake for 5 more minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean. Cool before serving.
