The last cornbread recipe you'll ever need. This is a fan favorite every summer with anything that comes off the BBQ. This moist buttery sweet cornbread is the perfect consistency with a fluffy center and golden brown top!


  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs


  • Preheat your oven to 400F. Grease a 9-inch square baking dish or a 9-inch cast iron pan with butter and place into the oven to heat up. You want to add extra flavor, grease the pan with bacon drippings, its delicious!
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. No need for a separate bowl for your wet ingredients here, once the dry ingredients are mixed, make a well in the center. Using a measuring cup, add in the buttermilk and eggs and mix well to combine. Add in your slightly cooled melted butter until just combined.
  • Remove your baking dish from the oven and pour the batter in. (The sizzle is exactly what you want!) Bake the cornbread for about 20-23 minutes or until the top browns with crispy edges and a toothpick test in the center comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy straight out of the oven or top with your favorite toppings. Butter, a drizzle of honey, or cheddar cheese is delicious!
