What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk (shake container before pouring)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow ​cornmeal

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the melted butter and sugar. Add the eggs and whisk until combined. Add the buttermilk and baking soda, and whisk to combine. Add the flour, cornmeal, and salt. Using a spatula stir until just blended. Do not over mix.
  3. Pour batter into a greased 8-inch square pan or similarly sized cast iron skillet. Bake for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool for at least 15 minutes before trying to cut.
