Homemade Cornbread with Honey Butter

What better thing to do on a fall day than clean the house and make a Crockpot dinner? I have my windows open, the cool breeze coming in, and the smell of chilli is filling up the house! Ahh…I love fall. Can you think of something that goes well with chili? I sure can…

There is nothing quite like freshly baked cornbread warm out of the oven…cut out a slice and slather it with homemade honey butter and you just may wonder why something so good could be so easy! 

This recipe is a staple in my home along side of a big Crockpot full of  Chili!

 1 1/4 c flour, 3/4 cup cornmeal, 2 tsp baking powder, 1/3 cup sugar, 3/4 tsp salt, 1 1/4 cup milk, 1/4 cup butter, 1 egg
Combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar, salt in medium bowl
Add milk
Add butter and egg
Stir until just combined
Pour into a greased 8×8 pan
Bake this in a preheated 400 oven for appx 20 mins or until golden brown.
I will give you two guesses what’s in Honey Butter…lol.1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1/3 cup honey 
Mix well
Until creamy
Place in a glass serving bowl
Here it is…hot out of the oven..MMmmm

  1. So glad you got the printer-friendly link up! Thank you 🙂 Going to make this cornbread AND the honey butter. I’ve never done that before, but it sure looks easy!

  2. Chili is in the crockpot and the cornbread is cooling on the counter. I am SO glad I found this blog. Thank you.

  3. Oh how my kids will LOVE this. The love some honey butter… Thanks for sharing as always!!

  4. Had these with dinner tonight and they were delish! Thanks for the recipe.

  5. This cornbread was so moist and delicious, even better than Boston markets cornbread!

  6. Janelle!! This cornbread beats the socks off anything else I’ve made! Must be that honey butter:) I melted it too much so I just poured it on top and it was amazing!!

  7. I made this for dinner last night; I desperately wanted the cornbread because I love it, but I have a milk allergy. So, I replaced the milk with rice milk and the butter with olive oil and it was just delicious, then for the honey butter I used soya margarine instead – so great to find a recipe I can adapt! My kids especially loved it, and my son has been chomping on the leftover bread all day!

    I love your site and your food, my whole family has benefited from your meal plans; thank you for all your work!
