  • 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.
