- 2 cups Corn Meal, (I used Hodgson Mill yellow cornmeal) yellow or white corn meal will work
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt (more or less to taste)
- 2 tablespoons oil, I used canola
- 1 tablespoon raw honey (optional)
- 1-3/4 cups low fat buttermilk
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add canola oil to a 8" cast iron skillet or cake pan. Ensure oil is rubbed on sides as well as bottom of skillet. While preparing cornbread, place skillet with oil in the oven for 5 - 7 minutes.
Combine dry ingredients in a medium size mixing bowl. In a small bowl whisk together honey, buttermilk and egg, add to dry ingredients and stir just to combine.
Note: If using cornbread for stuffing, allow to cool completely before making into bread crumbs. This recipe makes 6-7 cups of cornbread crumbs.
Remove skillet from oven and pour hot oil in cornbread mixture, stir. Sprinkle the bottom of the skillet with 1 teaspoon of cornmeal. Pour cornmeal mixture in the skillet, place in the oven on middle rack and bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden in color.
