  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal, I used yellow cornmeal. Be sure you do NOT use self-rising
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda


  • Make sure one of your oven racks is in the middle of the oven and preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease an 8-inch square pan (or a round cake pan which is what I used) with butter or cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk, honey, eggs, and butter until honey is fully incorporated.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry and thoroughly mix the two together. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown. Cool in pan for 5 minutes.
