I haven't posted a recipe in such a long time!! I won't do it very often, because I would rather boss y'all around, but I simply HAVE to pass this one along. It is the BEST cornbread I have ever eaten. And since I'm Southern born and bred, I've eaten a whole lot of cornbread. We had this for lunch after church on Sunday, with homemade vegetable soup.
You're gonna need...
1 cup of yellow cornmeal
1 cup of all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar (optional)
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of salt
Mix all this really well in a kinda big bowl. I use my large Pampered Chef glass measuring bowl, which I can't think of the proper name for. It's right on the tip of my tongue...arrrgggg. Batter bowl; I looked it up.
Then, melt a whole stick of REAL butter in the microwave. Add to it 1 cup of buttermilk (or plain milk), and 1/4 cup of raw honey. You can purchase raw honey at the store if you don't have a local source. Local is better!! Beat 2 eggs and add to this mixture.
Pour all this into your dry mix. Stir until it's all mixed up real good.
Pour into a 9x13 well greased pan.
Bake at 375* for 15 minutes.
I use my large toaster oven that holds this size pan, and adjust the temperature to 350* for 15 minutes.
It will be a beautiful golden brown when it is done. Now, cut and spread each slice generously with butter. Then talk about how wonderful that Dawn is to give you such a recipe. Mmmmmmm...
And don't even THINK about using something besides real butter. If you have a problem with butter, email me so I can set you straight. It is a healthy fat. Margarine will kill you. Repeat after me...
"margarine will kill me...margarine will kill me..."
Make some tonight!!
