As the calendar rolls over to another year, I trust that you've had your traditional New Year's meal of black eyed peas and collard greans. This meal, of course, should ALWAYS be accompanied by cornbread.
This year, all three Harris Sisters and their families were in one location for New Year's Day, so we enjoyed this traditional meal together. We whipped up Misty's cornbread recipe to accompany the meal. It's not too late for you to give this one a try. It's super simple and it's got a "secret" ingredient that adds a little sweetness.
Sweet Honey Cornbread
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
2 eggs, lightly beaten
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9 x 9 baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
- In a medium mixing bowl, stir together dry ingredients.
- Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add wet ingredients in the order listed.
- Stir to combine.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in preheated oven.
If you REALLY want to make your best endeavor to bake cornbread "the Southern way," try your best to wear an apron with a rooster on it whilst baking:
