- 5 tablespoons (71 grams) unsalted butter
- 1 cup (240 grams) milk
- 1 large egg (50 grams) plus 1 egg yolk (19 grams)
- 1/3 cup (75 grams) vegetable oil
- 1 1/4 cups (188 grams) yellow cornmeal
- 1 cup (120 grams) all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup (100 grams) granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon (10 grams) baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
CINNAMON HONEY BUTTER
- 1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 1/2 tablespoons (32 grams) pure honey
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- SWEET CORNBREAD: In a small skillet over medium-low heat, melt butter until it becomes aromatic and amber-brown in color, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer melted browned butter to a shallow bowl to cool to warm or room temperature.
- Meanwhile, heat oven to 350°F (175°C). Using a baking spray with flour, generously coat the bottom and sides of a13×9 inch (33×23 cm) baking pan; set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk milk, egg, egg yolk, browned butter and oil until just combined. Using a rubber spatula, mix in cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt until just combined. Batter will be lumpy or gritty. Do not over mix.
- Pour batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly to the edges of the pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
- Remove from the oven and allow cornbread to rest in the pan for 15 minutes before cutting and serving.
- CINNAMON HONEY BUTTER: Meanwhile, in a small bowl, using a long tined fork, mix butter, 1 tablespoon honey, cinnamon and salt together until smooth. Add more honey or cinnamon to taste. Spread over the cornbread when served.
- If using salted butter to make the cinnamon honey butter, omit the 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
