• 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly • 1 cup all-purpose flour • 1 cup yellow cornmeal • 1/4 cup brown sugar • 1 teaspoon baking powder • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda • 1/4 teaspoon salt • 1 cup buttermilk (shake before measuring) • 1/4 cup honey • 2 large eggs


Step 1

To begin, place the oven rack in the middle position. Then, preheat to 400 degrees F.

Step 2

Prepare a 9-inch cast-iron skillet or 9-inch square baking dish by lightly coating it with butter. Place the dish/skillet into the oven to heat up.

Step 3

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.

Step 4

Form a well in the center and add the honey, buttermilk, and eggs. Stir well to combine. Add in the butter and stir again to mix thoroughly.

Step 5

Remove your hot pan or dish from the oven carefully. Then, pour the batter into the hot skillet or dish.

Step 6

Bake for 20-23 minutes until the cornbread starts to brown on the top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Step 7

Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
