  • 1 tablespoon butter softened
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1/4 cup honey


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Use the softened butter to grease a 9 or 10 inch square baking pan or cast iron skillet.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
  • Make a well in the middle of the dry mixture and add the buttermilk, eggs, butter and honey.
  • Stir until just combined - do not overmix!
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for at least 10 minutes. Cut into pieces and serve.



Recipe adapted from Food Network. If you prefer to make cornbread muffins, simply divide the batter into a greased 12 muffin cup tin and bake for 15 minutes.
