Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the butter into a 9-inch cast iron skillet and into the oven while it preheats, to melt. [Alternative: Use an 9 x 9 heavy metal baking or pie pan]
In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, honey and oil.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry mixing just until combined.
Swirl the melted butter to coat the sides and bottom of the skillet, then pour the batter into the cast iron skillet.
Place into the oven. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes back clean.
Serve with a pat of butter and a drizzle of honey.
