READY IN: 35mins




  • Adjust oven rack to middle position. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Spray 8-inch-square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Whisk flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl until combined; set aside.
  • In food processor or blender, process brown sugar, corn kernels, and buttermilk until combined, about 5 seconds.
  • Add eggs and process until well combined (corn lumps will remain), about 5 seconds longer.
  • Using rubber spatula, make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.
  • Pour wet ingredients into well.
  • Begin folding dry ingredients into wet, giving mixture only a few turns to barely combine.
  • Add melted butter and continue folding until dry ingredients are just moistened.
  • Pour batter into prepared baking dish; smooth surface with rubber spatula.
  • Bake until deep golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 25 to 35 minutes.
  • Cool on wire rack rack 10 minutes.
  • Best served warm; leftovers can be wrapped in foil and reheated in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
