Wicked Buttermilk Cornbread

Rumor has it, southerners make the best cornbread.  Now, not being a true southerner does not mean it's not possible to deliver a wicked cornbread recipe.  Don't raise your eyebrow my southern friends when honey is mentioned in the recipe, and whole kernel corn too.  Bacon drippings and lard are divine but honey and buttermilk steals the show.



Wicked Buttermilk Cornbread
Makes 8x8 pan
Recipe adapted from Life Made Simple
lifemadesimplebakes.com



Ingredients:
8 tablespoons (1 stick butter)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup good quality honey
2 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup whole yellow kernel corn (if frozen, thawed)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup good quality cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda


Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Lightly spray or butter a 8x8 square baking pan.  Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, sugar and honey.  Whisk in the eggs one at a time, beating until the mixture is smooth.  Add the buttermilk, and corn, mix to combine.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, salt, and baking soda.  Gradually add the dry ingredients, stirring with a spatula until only a few lumps remain.  Pour the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with the spatula to create a even layer.  Allow the batter to sit for a few minutes before placing in the oven to bake.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until top is golden brown and a cake tester inserted comes out clean.  Remove from the oven, brush the top with butter and allow to cool before slicing and serving.

Enjoy!

Very nice stack you have there!!!
I love the versatility of cornbread - you can add just about anything to it’s batter to kick it up a notch!!!

Angie Schneider said...

These cornbread slices look wonderfully delicious and I love that you have sweetened them with honey.

Corn bread is something I had never had until I made a loaf a couple of months back and we both so enjoyed it. Will give this recipe a try as well, thanks for sharing. Diane

I come and go with cornbread and realized I like it a bit sweeter. Can't remember if that's a Yankee cornbread or the Southern variety. The honey in there sounds like a winner to me. Is it from the farm?

This loks delicious Velva!

Velva, We both love sweet moist cornbread and it's really enhanced with whole kernel corn...adds texture. Cornbread down here in the south does tend to be sweet but I like your version best! FYI...much more on Ireland to come on my blog site with lots of photos of the small towns and countryside. Thanks for stopping by... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

I love it when cornbread has actual corn in it! It makes it so moist :D

While I didn't grow up eating sweet cornbread, my husband loves it that way and would really enjoy yours made with the honey. :)

Yum! My mother likes her cornbread nice and traditional, but I like to sweeten mine with a bit of honey or sugar too. I know we will enjoy this one with the whole corn kernels! Looks delicious to me, Velva :)

Pam said...

That's some sweet cornbread, Velva! Bet it's delicious! Love it with honey and kernel corn! Thanks!

Yum! I have never tried anything similar to this recipe and it seems mouth-watering. Is it possible to use maple syrup instead of honey, Velva?

I love to take moist cornbread and dump a huge spoonful of chili on top of it--this recipe looks perfect for that.
