A versatile recipe.

I am honored that I get to make and bring this honey cornbread to my in-laws for Thanksgiving. I make them in my pumpkin muffin tins. It’s a great recipe from Allrecipes.com and I have had good success using different flours (whole wheat, soy) instead of the white flour, and find that it’s too sweet with plain flour anyway.


  •  >>1 cup all-purpose flour
  • >>1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • >>1/4 cup white sugar
  • >>1 tablespoon baking powder
  • >>1 cup heavy cream
  • >>1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • >>1/4 cup honey
  • >>2 eggs, lightly beaten

The original recipe yields 8 servings.


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius). Lightly grease a 9×9 inch baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, cornmeal, sugar and baking powder.
  3. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Add the cream, oil, honey and eggs; stir to combine.
  4. Pour batter into prepared baking pan.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of pan comes out clean.
