Homemade cornbread recipe

Thursday, September 29, 2011

One of the blogs I love to follow, Sherri Lynn's Life of a Wife, recently had a post that I loved!!  If you remember a few weeks ago, I blogged about my mamaw's cornbread and how I have been dying to find a great recipe for homemade cornbread.  And Sherri Lynn's post was just what I was looking for... click here to see her post.

So tonight — I decided to try out her recipe!

Buttermilk Cornbread with Monterey Jack Cheese
1 cup flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup (packed) coarsely grated Monterey Jack cheese
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
3 Tbsp honey
1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Butter an 8x8" baking dish.  

Whisk flour, cornmeal, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in medium bowl.  Stir in cheese.  In another bowl, whisk together buttermilk, eggs, and honey.  Add melted butter and whisk until blended well.  Add buttermilk mixture to dry ingredients.  Stir just until combined.

Pour batter into prepared pan.  Bake until tester inserted into center of bread comes out clean, about 15 minutes.  Cool completely in pan on rack.
