  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

cornbread baking

Baking Instructions:

1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and grease a 9-inch square baking pan. Preheating the oven ensures that the cornbread cooks evenly and achieves a beautiful golden crust.

2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Combining these dry ingredients thoroughly will help distribute the flavors and ensure a consistent texture.

3. In a separate bowl, mix together the buttermilk, vegetable oil, honey, and eggs until well combined. Using buttermilk gives the cornbread a slight tanginess and helps create a moist and tender crumb. When using honey in this recipe, opting for high-quality honey, such as Artisan Bees Honey Company's honey, enhances the flavor profile and adds a unique richness to the cornbread.

4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be sure to mix just until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated. Overmixing can result in a dense and tough cornbread.

5. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and smooth the top with a spatula. The batter should be evenly spread to allow for even baking and a uniform texture.

6. Place the baking pan into the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. The baking time may vary slightly depending on your oven, so keep a close eye on the cornbread as it bakes.

7. Once baked, remove the cornbread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. This will firm up the cornbread slightly and make it easier to handle.

8. After cooling slightly, cut the cornbread into squares or wedges. Honey cornbread pairs well with various dishes, making it versatile for different meals. The slightly sweet and savory flavor of honey cornbread complements dishes such as chili, barbecue meats, soups, stews, and roasted vegetables. The cornbread provides a hearty and satisfying accompaniment that balances the flavors of these dishes.
