  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup plain yellow cornmeal
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup vegetable or canola oil


  • 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.
