Ingredients for Toasted Cornmeal Cornbread

  • 2 cups (288g) yellow cornmeal, finely ground

  • 2 cups (240g) all-purpose flour

  • 1 Tbsp baking powder

  • 1 Tbsp Kosher salt (may want to reduce to 1 tsp)

Directions for Toasted Cornmeal Cornbread

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a 9 x 9 inch metal pan with non-stick spray.

  2. In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, lightly toast the cornmeal. Stir or shake pan to prevent over browning. Cornmeal should turn light brown in about 5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.

  3. Add to the large bowl all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk together.

  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, honey, and eggs. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients. Use a whisk or fork to mix together until batter is moistened. Add melted butter and mix into the batter.

  5. Pour the batter into the prepared metal pan. Bake 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Test doneness with a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread; toothpick inserted should be clean when removed. Let the cornbread cool on a rack for 15 minutes prior to cutting. Serve warm or at room temperature.
