If you have been to America before you will notice that in their grocery stores there is a huge cool and frozen section which is home to a variety of lots of different items. One thing that you will notice a lot of is bread related products where you can make them from the dough and then cook at home. One of the most popular brands for this is Pilsbury and today we are going to look at one of their products.

Cornbread is a bread that is from the Southern States of America, it is made out of cornmeal and can be made quite quickly. In 2020, Pilbury released their own version called Cornbread Swirls that are meant to make it easier to make them if you do not have the time or want to impress. The aim of the buns is to take the stress out of the cooking.

They are made out of ingredients such as Enriched flour bleached, yellow corn meal, soybean, sugar and salt to name a few of the items. To make the Swirls all you have to do is separate them out of the tin, place them in a muffin tray and cook them for 13-17 minutes in an oven at 350 degrees – fast and an easy shortcut.

The aim of the Cornbread Swirls is to make them a perfect accompaniment for things such as BBQs and meals. One swirl will be 170 calories. There are a lot of mixed reviews online about these Cornbread Swirls – some people really like them and love the fact that they are simple to make with a great flavour. There is a lot of debate about if the taste is actually cornbread and some people find them too sweet.
