How To Make Honey Butter Cornbread

It’s sweet with a distinct flavor of butter, this butter cornbread is mixed with honey for a nice combination of sweet and slightly citrusy taste.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 35 minutes
Total: 45 minutes



  • ½cupunsalted butter,(1 stick)
  • cupscornmeal,medium-grind or finer
  • cupswhite whole wheat flour,regular whole wheat flour or all-purpose flour
  • tspfine sea salt
  • 2tspbaking powder
  • ½tspbaking soda
  • 3large eggs,at room temperature
  • cuphoney,or maple syrup
  • cupsmilk of choice,regular cow’s milk, almond or oat milk, etc., at room temperature

Optional Serving Suggestions:

  • butter,additional
  • honey
  • jam


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Place the butter in a large cast-iron skillet and place the skillet in the oven to melt the butter, about 5 to 13 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir to combine, and set aside.

  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and honey until fully blended. Add the milk and whisk until evenly combined.

  4. Pour the liquid into the dry mixture, and stir just until moistened through. When the butter is melted and golden, remove the skillet from the oven, and give it a gentle swirl to lightly coat about an inch up the sides.

  5. Pour the melted butter into the batter and stir just until incorporated.

  6. Return the skillet to the oven and bake until the bread is brown around the edge, springy to the touch, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean with just a few crumbs for 25 to 30 minutes.

  7. Carefully place the skillet on a cooling rack. Let it cool for at least 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

  8. This cornbread will keep at room temperature in a sealed container for up to 3 days, or up to a week in the refrigerator.
