The MicroPro® Grill is not only great for grilling but baking, too.

In this recipe, we both bake and grill cornbread using the MicroPro® Grill. You could use any cornbread recipe; you will have to test the length of time for baking in the microwave, starting around 5 minutes at 70% power. If the cornbread is still wet, continue to bake in the microwave in one-minute increments at 70% power until the bread is fully baked.

Grilling should not take more than 3 minutes at 70% power.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup coarse cornmeal

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted

  • 3/4 cup buttermilk


  • In the Thatsa® Bowl, whisk all the ingredients together until smooth. Allow the batter to rest for 5 minutes.
  • Place the Pro Ring in the base of the MicroPro® Grill and pour 3/4 cup of batter into the Ring.
  • Place cover on in the casserole position and microwave for 5 minutes at 70% power.
  • Using oven gloves, remove the Pro Ring and flip the cornbread using a non-metal spatula. Place cover in the grill position and microwave for 2 minutes at 70% power.
  • Repeat steps 2-4 with the remaining batter.
  • Serve warm with butter (optional).

  • While you can make your own buttermilk by adding 2 tsp of lemon juice or vinegar to 3/4 cup of whole milk, I prefer to have actual buttermilk for this recipe (I tried lemon juice and vinegar and didn’t like either alternative).
