I’ve always wanted to find a cornbread recipe which is delicious — instead of dry and grainy. Well, when we were in Branson for a little getaway last year, we ate at McFarlain’s Restaurant. I took one bite of their cornbread and said, “This is it!”
And then I spent the next five minutes taking little bites and over-analyzing how they achieved such a perfect cornbread. All the while my husband is looking at me like, “Are you okay? It’s just cornbread, honey!”
But he did agree that it was out-of-this world cornbread and he’d love it if I could make it at home. So, I was able to get a copy of the recipe and, after making it at home, I can guarantee you this is quite possibly the world’s best cornbread — ever. My husband and children concur.
World’s Best Honey Cornbread
- 2/3 cup sugar (I used turbinado.)
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 1/3 cups milk
- 2 1/3 cups flour
- 1 1/2 Tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup corn meal
- 1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cream sugar and butter. Add in eggs, honey and milk and mix well.
Mix together flour, baking powder, corn meal and salt. Mix dry ingredients with wet ingredients carefully. Do not overmix. Batter will be lumpy.
Pour batter in greased 11×14-inch baking pan. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown.
