  • Mixing bowls
  • Whisk or wooden spoon
  • 8-inch square baking pan
  • Cooking spray or butter for greasing
  • Oven


  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1/4 cup honey or sugar adjust to taste
  • 2 large eggs


Preheat and Prepare:

  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Grease an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray or butter.

Mix Dry Ingredients:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the cornmeal, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk together until well combined.

Combine Wet Ingredients:

  • In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, melted butter, honey (or sugar), and eggs until the mixture is smooth and well incorporated.

Create Batter:

  • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined, being careful not to overmix. The batter should be lumpy.


  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it evenly.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Cool and Serve:

  • Allow the cornbread to cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

Slice and Enjoy:

  • Once cooled, slice the cornbread into squares or wedges.
  • Serve warm with butter, honey, or alongside your favorite Southern dishes.
