Honey Cornbread

I made this yesterday for Easter while BBQing with friends. It was so easy and really quite delicious - not too sweet, and very light and fluffy. Much better than the box of Jiffy I am used to. Thanks to Allrecipes.com for this one!

What's in it
1 C flour
1 C cornmeal
1/4 C sugar
1 Tbl baking powder
1 C heavy cream
1/4 C vegetable oil
1/4 C honey
2 eggs, lightly beaten

How it's made
Preheat oven to 400 degrees, and lightly grease a 9x9 baking pan or cast iron skillet.

In a mixing bowl, stir together the dry ingredients. Then make a well in the center of the ingredients and add the rest of the wet ingredients and stir to combine.

Bake 20-25 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out dry. Drizzle honey on top for extra sweetness.

Andrea asked about honey butter, and apparently it's easy to make. Just whisk together soft butter and honey. It is delicious on cornbread. I will try making it next time.


  1. I am really excited about this. I really like corn bread, but I've never made it from scratch. The honey butter sounds phenomenal!

  2. I'm probably going to make it tomorrow again. So good.
