This recipe came from stephskitchen.com and it's wonderful. I bake it at least once a month! It has just the right amount of sweetness and it's easy to throw to together.
- Preheat oven to 350º.
- In a bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
- Add the oil, melted butter, honey, eggs, and milk.
- Pour into a greased 8-inch square pan.
- Bake for 35 minutes.
I never liked corn bread growing up. I remember making it in Girl Scout camp and I remember my mom making it. It was always dry and gritty (sorry Mom!) and tasted bland. When my husband asked me to make cornbread for him, I reluctantly looked up a recipe on Zaar. Now I can say that I LOVE cornbread! This recipe is perfect in my mind. I make this recipe every chance I get - chili cook-offs, pot luck dinners, and my husband often gets requests from his friends at work, so I'll make up a batch for him to bring them every so often. Make a double batch and put it in a 9x13 pan - you won't be sorry you did. It will come out perfectly moist and the sweetness will make you wish your mama had known how to make it this way.
Perfect cornbread!! I've already had to share the recipe. Moist, slightly sweet and very delicious. Thanks! UPDATE: I make this usually once a week. Since a few family members though it was a bit too sweet, I cut the sugar and salt in half. (If you cut the sugar without cutting the salt, it is too salty...been there done that!! ;) ) It still is an incredibly flavorful, moist, sweet cornbread that we all ADORE! It also work well to bake it a day or two ahead of time. It keeps beautifully! I found this out when I was going to be gone for two nights but would need a meal within minutes of returning home. This recipe saved me a lot of hassle! Thanks again for sharing it!
This is a fabulous recipe. I'd give it more stars if I could. I'm not a big cornbread fan but even I love this one and my picky DS can't get enough of it. I follow the recipe exactly and it always turns out perfect, but one time I forgot the melted butter in the microwave and couldn't tell the difference -- so if you're cutting back on calories and leave out the butter you'll still be in heaven with this winning recipe. Thanks Lvs2Cook!
