Description

Food snobs, look away! The honey butter has a rather unique ingredient, but I tell you what, I’ve never tasted a honey butter more fluffy and delicious than this one.

And the cornbread? Moist and perfect. Enough said.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Cornmeal
  • 1-½ cup Flour
  • ⅔ cups Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ⅓ cups Oil
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
  • 2 whole Eggs, Beaten
  • 1-¼ cup Milk
  • FOR HONEY BUTTER:
  • 2 sticks Butter, Softened
  • ½ cups Honey
  • ½ cups Marshmallow Fluff

Preparation

Mix dry ingredients, make a well and add oil, butter, eggs, and milk into the center. Stir until just mixed (batter will be runny, but don’t be alarmed!). Bake in an 8″ square pan at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. This doubles perfectly for a 9×13-inch pan.

To make honey butter, whip honey butter ingredients together with an electric mixer and serve at room temperature (can be refrigerated and softened).

I loved the honey butter I used it with some rolls I made. I never thought to add marshmallow fluff to it ! Thanks!

Wicked good! I love sweet cornbread, and this butter was amazing! I might cut down on the honey next time I make it, because it was pretty honey-tasting, but good nonetheless!

This is the absolute best cornbread I’ve ever had. Was on the lookout for good cornbread and the search definitely stopped here. Every time I make it, it’s gone quick, so I’ve started making double batches. — Unlike most cornbread, it’s just as good – if not better – the next day! Amazing.

I make this at least twice a month, always a hit with the kids and husband…love that honey butter recipe and the cornbread can’t be beat!

How am I the first person to rate this recipe? I have made many-a-corbread in my day, and none even compare to this cornbread (if it can even be called that). It is simply amazing. The honey butter acheives a consistency that is often lacking in more traditional recipes – the marshmallow fluff, albeit unconventional, adds the perfect texture to the spread.

I feel terrible for every other corn bread recipe in the world because I will never, ever, be making anything else but this.
