Recipe: Honey Cornbread
This is one of the best cornbread recipes I’ve made so far. It’s simple and delicious. I love the crusty sweet texture and it’s beautifully paired with my recipe for Minnesota Chili. It takes just a couple minutes to whip up and in less than 45-minutes you’ll have delicious Honey Cornbread.
If you make the Minnesota Chili at the same time you can easily have an amazing and comforting dinner ready in less than 45 minutes. Let me show you step-by-step how to make this ridiculous good Honey Cornbread (recipe adapted from Cooks Country.)

Here are the ingredients: corn meal, flour (I used white wheat), salt, baking powder, baking soda, low-fat buttermilk, eggs, honey and butter.
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and prepare your pan with non-stick cooking spray (or butter) and set aside. I used a 9×5 but I will give the instructions for an 8×8 pan.
To small bowl, combine the corn meal, flour, …
…salt, baking powder and baking soda.
Whisk all of dry ingredients to combine (my way of sifting). Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the buttermilk, honey and eggs.
Whisk to combine, making sure to draw up the sticky honey from the bottom of the bowl.
Add in the melted butter and whisk again to combine.
With a rubber scraper or whisk, gently fold in the dry ingredients (I find I don’t over-mix if I use a rubber scraper). Be careful not to overwork the batter. Just mix until you see most of the dry incorporated.
Pour batter into prepared 8×8 pan and place in preheated oven (middle rack position is best).
Bake at 375°F (190°C) for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the pan.
Allow cornbread to cool in pan for 5 minutes (this allows the cornbread to release from the pan easier). Once it has cooled you can turn out on a cooling rack to cool for an additional 15 minutes OR you can serve immediately, like I do. I cannot wait that long! I know the slices won’t look as pretty, but dang is it worth it! You see what I mean by this slice. Can you blame me for diving right in?
This cornbread is slightly sweet and crisp. It goes great with a bowl of chili. Why don’t you also give my recipe for Minnesota Chili a try?
