  • Mixing bowls
  • Whisk or wooden spoon
  • 8-inch square baking pan or cast-iron skillet
  • Oven
  • Cooling rack


  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1/4 cup honey optional for a touch of sweetness


  • Preheat the Oven:
  • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Grease an 8-inch square baking pan or cast-iron skillet.
  • Combine Dry Ingredients:
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
  • Prepare Wet Ingredients:
  • In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, melted butter, and honey (if using).
  • Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined. Do not overmix; a few lumps are okay.
  • Bake the Cornbread:
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan or skillet, spreading it evenly.
  • Baking Time:
  • 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.
  • Cooling:
  • Allow the cornbread to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then transfer it to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Slice and Serve:
  • Once cooled, cut the cornbread into squares or wedges. Serve it warm or at room temperature.


  • For added flavor, try incorporating ingredients like chopped jalapeños, cheese, or corn kernels into the batter before baking.
  • Serve with butter, honey, or alongside your favorite chili or barbecue dishes.
