This is a thick, sweet cornbread that tastes like you are eating cake. This is a no-fail recipe, you can’t go wrong! If there are any leftovers, we have the cornbread the next day for breakfast served with honey and butter.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ⅓ cups white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • ⅓ cup melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 2 ½ cups whole milk

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. 2 Stir together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Pour in the vegetable oil, melted butter, honey, beaten eggs, and milk, and stir just to moisten.
  3. 3 Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, until the top of the cornbread starts to brown and show cracks.

  2. This cornbread is amazing! :) I baked mine into mini-loaf pans, which just made it better (since there was more of a crust on it). Delish!
  3. This cornbread is one of the best on the site! It rivals "Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread" 'til now I thought that was my favorite.

Thirty minutes and wa-la, perfect. No issues with sinking bread when you thought it was done. And the flavor is - Read more ...
  5. I love this recipe - I am of the sweet cornbread persuasion. I made it as written the first time and give it 5 stars, however, I've made it several more times and this is what I do now: I use 2/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce and 1/3 cup oil and totally skip the butter, - Read more ...

When my husband came home, we had HUNKS of it! Thanks for sharing such an amazing recipe. This should be - Read more ...
