Perfectly balanced, this Sweet Cornbread is made with Browned Butter creating a deep buttery flavor. To add to its richness, generously slather homemade Whipped Cinnamon Honey Butter across the top and for a sweeter finish, drizzle honey!




  • 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


  • 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


  1. 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. 
  2. 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. 
  3. 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. 
  4. 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. 
  5. Remove from the oven and allow cornbread to rest in the pan for 15 minutes before cutting and serving.  
  6. 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.
