I can’t tell you how excited I am to share this cornbread with you!
This recipe has been a favorite of my family for a long time. Year-round, we can’t get enough of this soft, sweet cornbread with our chilies, grilled meats, salads, and soups. We even sizzled leftover cornbread in a buttery breakfast pan. You haven’t lived until you’ve tasted this with your morning coffee. I’m telling you!
While a boxed mix can be helpful, nothing beats the taste of homemade, hot honey butter cornbread made with ingredients you can trust. Didn’t you know that it hardly takes time? All you need is a bowl and a handful of basic ingredients. We’re using healthy, great-tasting ingredients like buttermilk, honey, eggs, cornmeal, and lots of butter (sorry, but that’s the secret!).
Have 10 minutes and don’t have time for a big fuss? Then, you’re ready to bake the most delicious cornbread you’ve ever tasted.
Get ready to flex your Southern-style cornbread skills! You’re about to be the one everyone asks for the recipe.

honey butter? •
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a square baking dish (about 8×8 inches). •
In a medium bowl, stir butter, sugar, and honey. Beat the eggs one at a time. Beat in buttermilk. Add cornmeal, flour, salt and baking soda. Don’t mix too much. As soon as the flour disappears, stop mixing.
• Pour the dough into a prepared baking dish. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
• Meanwhile, combine 1/4 cup melted butter and 2 tablespoons. honey in a small bowl.
• Push the top of the cornbread gently with a fork. Pour the honey and butter mixture over the cornbread. (This makes the crumb extra moist!) Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
