Yield:
1 9-inch round loaf

Ingredients
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 2/3 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup milk, warmed
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

  • Grease a 9-inch round, 1 1/2-inch deep cake pan.

  • With a fork, stir together the cake flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and sugar.

  • Beat the egg, melted butter, oil and milk in a large mixing bowl until well blended. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture and stir until blended. The batter will be somewhat thin and light.

  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 15 minutes, until a straw inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Press the center of the bread; if it feels slightly firm the bread is done. Be careful not to overbake.

  • Serve warm wedges of the cornbread with butter and honey.
