  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 40 mins
  • Yield: 6-8 servings


  • 1 cup yellow corn meal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  2. Grease up a 10″ cast iron skillet with butter. Be sure to get the sides too.
  3. In a large bowl, add cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Whisk together well.
  4. In a small bowl, mix egg, oil, milk and honey. Mix well. Add wet batter to dry ingredients and mix just until everything is incorporated.
  5. Use a strainer and strain a can of cream corn to get most of the liquid out. Then add 1/2 cup of the corn to the batter and gently mix it in to the batter.
  6. Pour batter into a well greased iron skillet and bake for 25-30 minutes. Test with toothpick in center of cornbread. If it comes out clean, it’s done!
