Today, I'm sharing a classic cookout side dish: cornbread. I prefer my cornbread sweet and buttery, which this one is — all it needs is a drizzle of honey! Though I won't judge if you put an extra pat of butter on top.
If you want to make a batch for a larger crowd, double the ingredients and bake in a 9x13 pan. It will likely need to bake longer as well. You may want to make a large batch even for a small crowd. It's hard to stop with just one piece!

- ⅓ cup buttermilk, at room temperature
- 2 large eggs, at room temperature
- ⅓ cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup cornmeal
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 ¼ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray an 8x8 baking pan with nonstick spray.
- In a small bowl, stir together the eggs, buttermilk and melted butter.
- In a larger bowl, stir together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients, and stir just until all of the dry ingredients are moistened. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a paring knife inserted in the center of the cornbread comes out clean.
- Cut into four rows and four columns for 16 squares, and serve.
