Corn Bread

I fell in love with cornbread one night out with friends at a restaurant. Since then, every time I go to other places, I always look out for cornbread but unfortunately, I don’t always get it :(. This constant disappointment got me thinking, “umm I should be able to make some cornbread” and so today, I am going to share my experience making cornbread.

– 1 Cup all purpose flour
– 1 Cup yellow cornmeal
– 1 Cup whole milk or buttermilk
– 2 large eggs
– 1/2 cup granulated sugar
– 1/2 stick butter, melted
– 1/4 cup honey
– 1 Tbs baking powder
– 1/2 tbspn salt


At the store, the only brand of yellow corn meal I could find was the one shown in the picture below. It turned out to be very good and did not give any problems during preparation and baking.


So to get started, in bowl, mix the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Mix till all ingrdients are properly mixed. In different or deep plate like I have, whisk together the whole milk/buttermilk, 2 eggs, butter, and honey.

The honey is optional so if you don’t have any, feel free to skip it. Also, although 1/2 stick of butter is the standard amount, after baking I noticed that the 1/2 stick of butter was a “tinsy winsy” bit too much for my personal taste so next time, I will be using less.

Next, pour the milk mix into the flour mix and stir properly.



Preheat oven to 375 F,  Pour the mix into a greased baking pan and bake in low rack (if your heat comes from the top of the oven) of 20/25 mins until golden. To ensure it is fully cooked, stick a toothpick in the center of the loaf, if it comes out clean and dry, cornbread is ready else allow to bake for a few more minutes.
