I wanted to make corn bread but didn't have sugar or milk. I did have buttermilk and honey. They seemed to work well. I guessed at how much honey would be needed and it seemed about right, not too sweet.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. and grease a 8 inch square baking pan.
  2. Sift the cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt together.
  3. In a seperate bowl mix the egg, buttermilk oil and honey.
  4. Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients.
  5. Beat until smooth.
  6. Pour into pan.
  7. Bake 20 minutes edges may start to brown a little.

Quick and easy. Not too sweet, yet very moist.

warning: this is not a good "quick" cornbread recipe! mine came out dense and flavorless.

This is so good!! It's soft and moist (almost cake-like), and sweetened just perfectly. I scaled the recipe to six servings, then baked the cornbread in a 4" x 8" loaf pan; and my DH and I ate it all at one meal! We'll definitely be having this again. Thanks for posting, Chef 392928!
