2 cups cornmeal

½ cup flour

½ cup sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

¼ tsp baking powder

2 cups buttermilk

1 Tbsp butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray a bread pan with cooking spray. (I used 3 small pans for sharing purposes)

Mix all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl until well combined.

Stir in buttermilk.

While oven preheats put butter in the bread pan and put the pan in the oven to melt butter.

Add batter to hot pan and bake for 45 – 50 minutes until lightly browned and set.

Cool before slicing.

*Remember the butter and honey
