How to Make Cornbread for Beginners
An important factor in learning how to make cornbread is mixing the batter the right way. Cornbread batter doesn’t need a lot of mixing. If you over-mix ingredients, you might end up with an unpleasant result. To make cornbread, you need:
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon of salt
- ¼ cup sugar white
- ¼ cup honey
- 1 cup half and half
- ¼ cup butter melted
- 2 whole eggs beaten
In one bowl, combine the dry ingredients: corn meal, flour, baking powder and salt. In another separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients: sugar, honey, half and half, butter and eggs.
Pour the wet mixture into the dry, flour mixture. Mix only until the flour is moist, not more than 15 seconds. The resulting batter should be moist and lumpy.
Pour the batter into a greased baking pan. Bake at 400 F for half an hour or until you can insert a chopstick or toothpick in the cornbread and it comes out clean. Serve.
