  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 1/2 tsps baking powder
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 egg large
  • 1 cup milk


  • Lightly grease a cast iron skillet or 9-inch round cake pan and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • In a mixing bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Whisk until combined well.
  • In a separate bowl combine milk, butter, and egg and whisk until combined.
  • Use the back of a measuring cup to make a well in the center of the dry ingredients mixture, and add the wet ingredients to that well.
  • Use a spoon to stir mixture until it comes together and is not too lumpy, but be careful to not overstir. A few lumps are okay.
  • Pour batter into prepared skillet or baking dish and bake for 20-22 minutes. Top should be a nice golden brown, and toothpick inserted in the middle should come out clean.
  • Serve hot with honey and butter!
