Description

It’s sweet. It’s cornbread. It goes great with chili, soups or beans.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
  • ½ cups Milk
  • ½ cups Water
  • 1 cup Yellow Corn Meal
  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • ½ Tablespoons Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375ºF. Spray an 8×8 baking dish with nonstick spray.

In a medium bowl, whisk together all your wet ingredients: sugar, honey, egg, butter, milk and water.

In a separate bowl, combine all your dry ingredients: corn meal, flour, baking powder and salt. Give it a gentle stir with a fork to combine.

While whisking, slowly add your dry ingredients to your wet until all combined. Batter may be a little lumpy; that’s okay.

Pour mixture into a greased 8×8 baking dish. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until golden brown on top and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Cook’s note: Here’s a tip for getting the honey out of your measuring spoon. Spray the spoon with nonstick spray first. Then pour in honey; this will help keep the honey from sticking.

This bread is wonderful to eat with chili. You can also add in other ingredients to kick this cornbread up a notch. For a Mexican cornbread, add about half of a very small can of chopped green chiles and ¼ cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Also, if you like corn bits in your cornbread, just add a small can of corn. You could even use some creamed corn in here as well. Feeding a larger crowd? Just double the recipe and bake in a greased 9×13 baking dish.

Enjoy!

Excellent! Needed to make cornbread and did not have buttermilk for my regular recipe, so I pulled up this recipe and it turned out great. Served it with chili and will have it with black-eyed peas, too!

Perfectly sweet and cake-like while still being a hearty piece of cornbread. Used brown sugar instead of white. And 3/4 white flour with 1/4 whole wheat due to what was on hand!
