Ingredients

1 1/3 cups yellow cornmeal

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/8 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 stick unsalted butter

2 large eggs

2 tablespoons honey

3/4 cup whole milk

3/4 cup sour cream

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Whisk the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.
  2. Cook 6 tablespoons butter in an 8-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat until browned, about 5 minutes; remove from the heat. Whisk the eggs and honey in a bowl, then whisk in the milk, sour cream and browned butter. Add to the flour mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined.
  3. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons butter in the skillet over medium heat until it foams. Remove from the heat and add the batter. Transfer to the oven; bake until the cornbread springs back when pressed, 20 to 30 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes in the skillet before slicing.
