I was struck by a craving for some sweet honey cornbread. I think, a family member started it. She made a loaf of sweet cornbread from a packet mix that I have bought here when she came to visit us, and took a picture then sent it to me. It looked so good than after work, I decided to go buy me a packet of sweet cornbread mix and made one myself. Except, I added a tablespoon of honey. I like sweet! It was soo good that I made a second batch the night after. Talking about food craving 😉
Then, a friend suggested to make it with honey butter. She said that it’s really good if you use honey butter instead of oil. Honey butter?! Why didn’t I think of it? Hmm.. I could just imagine how sinfully good it maybe. So, after a while, I tried to make one myself with the honey butter… from scratch this time! And, this is what I came ut with to share! Enjoy!
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
2/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk
1/2 cup of butter
2 tbp honey, divided
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray or lightly grease a meatloaf pan.
In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt and baking powder. Bring butter into room temperature. Whip together 1/2 cup of butter and 1 tbp of honey until smooth. Stir in egg, milk, the honey-butter mix, and 1 tsbp of honey, until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
Enjoy! Just don’t get addicted! 😉
