  • 1 cup flour
  • ¾ cup cornmeal
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup oil or melted butter


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • In a medium bowl stir together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • Add the 1 Tbsp butter to a 9'' baking pan. Place in oven for a few minutes until it melts, then swirl the pan around so the melted butter coats the bottom of the pan.
  • Meanwhile, combine eggs, milk and oil in a small bowl.
  • Add egg mixture all at once to the flour mixture. Stir until just moistened.
  • Pour batter into baking pan, bake for 15 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cut into wedges, serve warm with honey.


You can also make these in a muffin tin! Grease it really well, or add liners. Fill ⅔ of the way and cook for 15 minutes or until golden brown on top and a toothpick comes out clean.
