Tried and True Tender Cornbread


  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup butter ½ stick, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Whisk cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the butter, eggs, and buttermilk until well blended. Pour this mixture into dry ingredients and gently stir until just combined.
  • Generously grease an 8” baking pan. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 22-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean.
