This was made as part of my Menu #34323. I did melt the butter in the preheated pan. Seeing how much there was when it was half melted I removed the solid piece. I suggest to melt the butter use half in the batter. I found the batter stiff and the bread dry. I do suggest a touch of sugar or honey. Thanks!
Very tasty corn bread. I might recommend using a 1/2 stick of butter to cut down on fat, and whisk in 1/2 cup of apple sauce to the milk/egg mixture.
